UFC Champ Henry Cejudo talks cannabis, UFC, and legalization & stigma in Mexico

If you’ve never seen Henry Cejudo fight, don’t worry, you are not alone. After the blitzkrieg of blows Cejudo delivered in UFC 238, even other fighters like Marlon Moraes can hardly claim that they have. 

Depending on what sport you follow, Henry Cejudo has either been a household name for close to 15 years, or a relatively new addition to the elite tier of UFC fighters. In 2006, while still in high-school, Cejudo won the American Wrestling Federations National Freestyle Tournament at the most elite level. Within two years, Cejudo represented America in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games and brought home the gold, making him the youngest ever Mexican-American Freestyle Wrestling Olympic Champion.

Mexico announces plans to end the prohibition of drugs

The President of Mexico has announced plans to pursue a dramatic shift away from drug prohibition. The National Development Plan for 2019-2024, presented by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and his administration last week, states that a “prohibitionist strategy is unsustainable” because it leads to violence and public health harms, and criminalizes people who use drugs. The plan proposes to negotiate with the United States and in multilateral settings like the United Nations to end the prohibition of drugs and redirect the resources now invested in the war on drugs toward treatment programs.
