Mexico Supreme Court to Consider Legalizing Recreational Cannabis

On October 28, the Mexico Supreme Court is set to discuss a proposal that would effectively legalize the possession, use and production of cannabis for recreational purposes.

According to Reuters, judges will vote on whether to declare unconstitutional parts of a federal health law prohibiting the growth and consumption of cannabis after a nonprofit group filed an injunction against a 2013 decision by health regulator Cofepris. According to documents on the supreme court’s website, the hearing date is set for October 28.

In addition to preventing thousands of arrests and garnering millions of dollars in taxes, legalizing cannabis in Mexico would have a huge effect on the nation’s drug cartels – which are responsible for tens of thousands of deaths – given that many of them receive a majority of their funding from cannabis sales.
