Mexico Introduces Bill to Legalize Medical and Recreational Cannabis Use

Kristin Hugo, writing for The Independent:

A Mexico senator has introduced a bill that would legalise recreational marijuana. 

Andrés Manuel López Obrador is the president-elect of Mexico, and his soon-to-be interior interior minister Olga Sanchez Cordero proposed a bill to legalise marijuana.

If it passes, each person will be allowed to have up to 20 plants at a time for personal consumption. The bill would also include regulating and monitoring production, sales, and consumption.

In five separate court cases, Mexico’s supreme court has ruled in favour of private citizens suing for their rights to consume recreational marijuana. If this law passes, it would no longer require a lawsuit for each citizen to smoke. 

Great to see that Mexico is moving forward with its plan to legalize cannabis. Pretty soon, America is going to be in the middle of a Legal Cannabis Sandwich.
