Mexico HIGH Court Mandates Recreational Use of Marijuana Legal After Country Fumbles Law

Via The Associated Press:

Mexico’s Supreme Court ordered the government Monday to issue permits for the personal use of marijuana and for the growing of limited amounts of pot plants, after the country’s Congress took too long to approve a limited legalization law.

Under Monday’s court ruling, people who want to smoke marijuana or grow a few pot plants for their own use can ask for a government permit until some legislation is enacted. They would have to be adults, abstain from using marijuana around children and refrain from driving or engaging in other risky activities while under the influence.

Medicinal marijuana use has been legal in Mexico since 2017 . Only Uruguay allows recreational use of pot in the region.

So who is it exactly who is losing the drug war?
