Mexico Supreme Court Rules Against Marijuana Prohibition

After a Monday Mexico Supreme Court decision finding unconstitutional certain provisions of the national government’s marijuana prohibition, an avenue has opened for people in the country to legally consume marijuana as well as engage in home cultivation of the plant. David Agren provides details at the Guardian.

Countrywide legalization is the situation now to the north and south of America. While just coming into being in Mexico, countrywide legalization has been in place in Canada since October of 2018.

At the same time, marijuana legalization momentum remains strong in America. So far this year, four governors have signed into law marijuana legalization legislation approved by state legislatures. That brings the number of states with legalized marijuana to 18. Yet more states have medical marijuana programs.

Legal marijuana to the north and south should help build the momentum toward legalization in America, both in more states and countrywide.
