Mexico legalizes medical marijuana

A decree issued by Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto today [June 19th, 2017] confirmed that Mexico has legalized cannabis for medicinal use. Peña Nieto was once a vehement opponent of cannabis legalization, but has since called for a re-examination of global drug policy after a nationwide public debate on legalization in early 2016.

“The ruling eliminates the prohibition and criminalization of acts related to the medicinal use of marijuana and its scientific research, and those relating to the production and distribution of the plant for these purposes,” stated the Lower House of Parliament, known as La Cámara de Diputados.
