And then it falls on Friday… A few days ago a representative from Mexico City presented a initiative to have the first Monday in December declared as Alcohol-Free City Day.

The Alcohol-Free City initiative in CDMX
According to the project of the local Morena deputy, Alberto Martínez Urincho, the objective is to raise awareness about alcohol consumption, its harmful effects, damage to health as well as the deadly consequences of its abuse.
The legislator affirms that the consumption of alcohol It is among the top 10 risk factors for death and disability worldwide.
In addition to harmful consumption for health, alcohol consumption generates important social and economic losses for individuals and society in general.
So, in this case there is no modified law, it is only proposed that The first Monday of December of each year is declared as Alcohol-Free City Day.
If approved, this proposal does not propose sanctions for anyone who throws a few chelitas that day, nor any infractions, or anything like that.
It’s nutty: the initiative only seeks to raise awareness to reduce uncontrolled excessive consumption of alcohol. If you want to take a look at the text proposed in the CDMX Congress, here we leave you the link.
