Mexico is Legalizing Medical Cannabis Next Week
By Jon Hiltz, Marijuana.com
In a bold move last Tuesday, the Mexican Senate has agreed to put forth an amendment that will allow medical marijuana for those in need south of the border.
The reform is expected to be officially executed next week on Tuesday, December 13th. This monumental decision will create a medical marijuana sandwich out of North America, with the US federal government being the only one still clinging to the prohibition of yesteryear.
The move comes as several members of the Mexican government call for medical cannabis access. The cross-party agreement happened between the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), the National Action Party (PAN), and the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD), Mexico’s three major political parties.
During the meeting this week, the Senate also heard from José Narro Robles, the Secretary of Health who underlined the importance of Mexico adopting this new legislation.
