Since today is April 20, 2016, (4/20 for all you potheads out there), I thought I would delve into some of the big changes in the marijuana laws down here in Mexico.
Last winter, the Mexican Supreme Court ruled that growing, possessing and smoking marijuana for recreation is legal under the right to freedom. The measure was approved on 4-1 vote of the five-justice panel, backing the argument that smoking marijuana is covered under the right of “free development of personality.”
Today a story came out on CNN, about more changes for marijuana legislation here in Mexico in the near future. This may be of some interest to those of you on medical or recreational marijuana.
Mexican law already allows for possession of up to 5 grams of marijuana.
(CNN)Mexico will be taking legislative steps to legalize the use of medicinal marijuana, and its government will consider penal code changes to decriminalize possession of small quantities or cannabis for personal use.
