Mexico Legalizes Marijuana

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto published a bill  on June 19th legalizing medical marijuana. The measure also classified the psychoactive ingredient in the drug, Tetrahydrocannabinol as therapeutic.

Last April, Mexico’s lower house in parliament overwhelmingly passed the bill with a 374-7 vote. It was then up to theMexican President to officially sign and turn it into law, which he  executed today.

In December of last year, the bill received incredible support from the Mexican Senate, with a yes vote of 98-7.

The recent passing of the bill in parliament was publicly endorsed by Mexico’s Secretary of Health, Dr. José Narro Robles, who stated: “I welcome the adoption of the therapeutic use of cannabis in Mexico.”
