A Mexican court has reportedly made it legal for two people to possess, use and transport cocaine not allowing them to however buy or sell the narcotic. Lupe Fiasco on hearing the news thought it wish to enlighten the general public on medical benefits of cocaine via instagram, check out what he had to say below.
“Actually…Cocaine is used by health care professionals and hospitals to temporarily numb the lining of the mouth, nose, and throat (mucous membranes) before certain medical procedures (e.g., biopsy, stitches, wound cleaning). It is an anesthetic that works quickly to numb the area about 1-2 minutes after application. Cocaine also causes blood vessels to narrow, an effect that can decrease bleeding and swelling from the procedure.” He said.
Lisa Sanchez who is the director for Mexico United Against Crime also spoke on the case saying “This case is about insisting on the need to stop criminalizing users of drugs… and design better public policies that explore all the available options, including regulation.”
