 Mexico gambles on legalising cannabis

 
MEXICO CITY, 21 Nov. - (ANA) - Mexico’s senate has approved a landmark cannabis legalisation bill in a landslide vote that paves the way for it to become the third country in the world to market the drug.
 
Senators voted 82 to 18 to approve the measure, with seven abstentions, marking a “major shift in a country where drug cartel violence in recent years has claimed over 100,000 lives”, Reuters reports.  - (ANA) -
