Mexican court says cocaine should be allowed

A pro-legalization group in Mexico says a court has granted two injunctions ordering the government to allow plaintiffs to carry and use cocaine, though not to buy or sell it.

The injunctions do not have any immediate effect, nor do they create a precedent or strike down current laws that make possession of cocaine illegal in Mexico.

The rulings announced Tuesday by the group Mexico United Against Crime were handed down in May. They would have to be confirmed by a higher court before having any effect. The government has already suggested it would appeal the injunctions.

But the group says the rulings open the door to a debate over devoting scarce law enforcement resources to violent crime, rather than drugs.

Scientists have recently developed advanced protocols harnessing the power of exosomes to create a new class of therapeutics to improve the effectiveness of stem cell therapy. In particular, they have developed new protocols for neurological diseases such as Alzheimer´s, Parkinson´s, Autism and Multiple Sclerosis. Read More
