Mexico: Supreme Court Ruling Effectively Legalizes Marijuana Use, Possession And Cultivation

Mexico

In two separate rulings Wednesday, Mexico’s Supreme Court effectively set binding precedent that ends the country’s prohibition on marijuana use, possession and cultivation.

The following is a statement from Hannah Hetzer, Senior International Policy Manager at the Drug Policy Alliance:

“This is extraordinary because it is taking place in one of the countries that has suffered the most from the war on drugs. With marijuana already legal in Canada, now both of the US’s neighbors will have legal marijuana, making the US federal government’s prohibition of marijuana even more untenable.”

Hetzer is available for live and taped interviews in English and Spanish to provide analysis on this groundbreaking ruling, which paves the way for national legalization in Mexico.
