He said this includes convenience stores/minisupers, bars & cantinas, but they must have a license for selling food, and can only sell alcohol to foreign tourists. He says the boats such as the catamarans do not have a regular food menu and cannot offer alcohol. He notes there will be a special ballot box for Mexican tourists to vote. He says the minimum to maximum fines for businesses who violate this law are 50,000-80,000 pesos. https://www.facebook.com/IMNOTICIA/videos/443021489442557/
