Pot is now legal in Arizona, and Utah allows medical treatment, as in New Mexico, which has also decriminalized the use and possession of small amounts of marijuana for medical purposes.
The country's legislators have been working on marijuana reform since 2018 when Mexico's Supreme Court declared possession and cultivation of marijuana unconstitutional and ordered Congress to change the law, but no solution seems insight at this point.
The Mexican Senate has passed a bill that would allow adults 18 and older to possess up to 28 grams of marijuana and grow 20 plants in their homes. The bill then must pass several committees in the lower house of Congress before it becomes law. There is no deadline for the adoption of the law, which has been extended several times since the Supreme Court's first decision. This would allow various amendments and modifications to the bill, as well as changes to its wording.
If adopted, Mexico would become only the third country after Canada and Uruguay to legalize marijuana at the federal level. It would also become the largest legal market in the world, but the law has its critics. The Senate president said last month that he believed there was a consensus to pass something before the deadline.
