Mexican Presidential Candidate Proposes for National Police Academy to Regulate Vapes
Mexican presidential candidate Jorge Álvarez Máynez proposes a national police academy to regulate e-cigarettes and marijuana, emphasizing tax revenue importance.

According to infobae, on March 7th, Mexican opposition citizen movement (MC) presidential candidate Jorge Álvarez Máynez proposed the creation of a national police academy on Wednesday (March 6th) to promote regulation of e-cigarettes or marijuana.


During a speech at the Mexican Autonomous Institute of Technology (ITAM), the candidate emphasized the necessity of reforms to Mexico's security and judicial systems. He stated that the country needs a police academy more than the large-scale prisons proposed by his opponent, Xóchitl Gálvez. He argued that because Mexico faces issues of inequality, individuals with higher social status may be able to evade imprisonment.


At the same time, the candidate advocates for regulating aerosol products, such as e-cigarettes. These products are entering Mexico through illegal channels and are not being regulated by the health authorities.


These devices can be found within a one kilometer radius. Prohibition is not the solution; regulation is what is appropriate for the country.


He believes that prohibition will only fuel the black market and deprive the country of much-needed tax revenue. At the same time, Alvarez Martinez emphasizes the importance of taxation, saying, "Mexico can tax items currently being sold in the illegal market in Mexico because if tax revenue is not increased, you will never be able to establish a decent healthcare system or a decent education system."
