Legalize Pot in Tourist Areas

It’s already decriminalized, What would change?

Don't kid yourself. That nice tidy law signed by politicians in Mexico City has zero effect on the ground here in Guerrero or most of rural Mexico. If a cop catches you with any amount of green herb you are likely to get roughed up, robbed and possibly even tossed in jail where they will extort you before eventually freeing you. They may confiscate all your property if they feel like it, unless of course you happen to be related to or good friends with an influyente. Words on paper have little meaning in the lawless parts of the country.
