Recreational Cannabis In Mexico
The Ministers of the SCJN in Mexico, Jose Ramon Cossio Diaz, Olga Sanchez Cordero, Alfredo Gutierrez Ortiz Mena and Arturo Zaldivar Lelo de Larrea, decided to vote in favor of the recreational use of marijuana TODAY.
They also determined that four Mexican citizens will have protection or will be allowed to consume marijuana for recreational purposes, they will be allowed to grow cannabis and they will also be allowed to transport it. This will lead to Jurisprudence or Jurisprudencia, which after 5 legal cases are ruled the same, then the same applies for all Mexican citizens.
This basically means that marijuana is finally legal in Mexico.
According to Olga Sanchez, "Prohibition is excessive and it does not protect the right of free people". Ministers agreed that in order for the government to talk about medical marijuana, cannabis must be legal first, as there would be no place for patients to acquire or purchase this herb legally and there is no point in allowing cannabis for medical purposes, if people are going to have to commit a crime to buy this herb.
This is really a huge step towards marijuana legalization worldwide and at Zip420 we are extremely happy that Mexico decided to legalize cannabis today.
