Mexico judge legalizes recreational cocaine use for two people


MEXICO CITY (CNN) — A court in Mexico City has ruled that two people should be allowed to use cocaine legally.

The unnamed pair will be allowed to use – but are not authorized to sell – small amounts of cocaine.

This, according to Mexico United Against Crime – an non-profit organization that filed legal papers in the case.

The organization is using this case as part of its efforts to change the drug laws in the country.

This is the first time that cocaine use has been made legal in Mexico.

It’s a landmark case…but it hasn’t made it fully through the legal process just yet.

The ruling still has to be reviewed by a higher court before it can go into effect.
