The legalization of marijuana is "irreversible" in drug-scarred Mexico following a key court ruling, former President Vicente Fox says, forecasting all drugs including cocaine and crystal meth will be freely available within a decade. Earlier this month, the Supreme Court gave the green light to growing marijuana for recreational use, a landmark decision that blasts open the door for an eventual legalization in Mexico, where warring gangs sparked a decade of drug violence.
