A medical marijuana bill was passed by the Mexican Senate in June, and it was signed into law on June 19, 2017. The Ministry of Health then had until mid-December to write regulations to implement the new law. As of early 2018, medical cannabis products are available in pharmacies throughout Mexico. They are used to treat conditions relating to Parkinson’s, epilepsy, and even cancer. While legal in most other countries, they are currently only available in Mexico City pharmacies and can be obtained only by Mexican citizens.
While Mexican marijuana laws have made it legal for adults to grow, possess, and consume cannabis in small amounts, the country is still far from being a legal market. The government of Mexico still has the power to prosecute people who use marijuana illegally, but the current laws are unconstitutional and could lead to a large influx of people on the streets. As a result, legalization of cannabis will likely be slow in Mexico, but in the meantime, this trend will continue.
The legalization of marijuana in Mexico could make the country the third-largest legal domestic market in the world. While it won’t solve all of the problems in the country, it could improve the lives of the poor and reduce social tensions. Aside from the political benefits of legalization, there are many more important benefits. The change in the legal status of cannabis in Mexico is likely to bring many benefits to the country.
Despite its benefits, the legalization of cannabis in Mexico may not be a complete solution. While the law will permit the cultivation and harvest of marijuana for medicinal purposes, it will still pose security challenges for the companies. The criminalization of cannabis is also illegal in Mexico. Moreover, a legalisation of marijuana may increase the risk of theft and violence. Therefore, it is crucial that the law be strictly enforced. As of right, the use of marijuana is prohibited in Mexico.
The legalization of marijuana in Mexico is likely to benefit the country’s economy. It could boost its economy and ease the coronavirus crisis, which has crippled the country’s economy. Some pro-marijuana activists are hesitant to embrace this change as it would result in a huge economic surplus. However, it is essential to understand that if marijuana is legal in Mexico, it will be a boon for local consumers and business.
