Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal are among the 67 prominent Mexican artists, politicians, intellectuals and attorneys, whom are calling for marijuana legalization.

According to Fox News Latino, Luna and Garcia Bernal signed a petition noting that more than half of Mexico's inmates are imprisoned for marijuana-related crimes and "Mexico has paid a high price for applying the punitive policy of prohibition."

Garcia Bernal and Luna, along with the rest of those calling for legalization, believe that this push is "a step in the right direction" that will only decrease criminal activity throughout Mexico.
