On Friday, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, Mexico's newly elected president, revealed his new plan to combat Mexico's drug war which includes legalizing drugs, instituting gun control, and reducing punishment for criminals.
Olga Sanchez, Lopez Obrador’s proposed interior minister, told Reuters about the new administration's "transitional justice" plan to stop Mexico's deadly drug cartels which will involve "leniency for those who admit guilt, truth commissions to investigate atrocities and the granting of reparations for some victims."
"Not only will it be amnesty, it will be a law to reduce jail time," Sanchez told Reuters. "We will propose decriminalization, create truth commissions, we will attack the causes of poverty, we will give scholarships to the youth and we will work in the field to get them out of the drug situation."
"Abrazos, no balazos" — or "hugs, not bullets" — was a campaign slogan championed by Lopez Obrador during his presidential run.
