Cannabis activist and lawyer Ulrich Richter is trying to push the legalization of cannabis through the Mexican Supreme Court, according to Herb. In Mexico the courts have similar powers for enacting laws as politicians do, which means that Richter’s case could be a potential answer to the lack of interest in legalizing marijuana on the political end. Mexico’s top court will begin to discuss Richter’s case on April 11. His main argument is that cannabis prohibition violates the human right of ‘free development of personality.’ That claim is supported by Supreme Court Judge Jorge Mario Pardo, and the right in question is recognized both by the country of Mexico and the UN’s Declaration of Human Rights, so the case definitely has some muscle. If Richter is successful, he will be able to grow and consume marijuana legally. Cannabis Legalization Begins Its Journey Through The Mexican Supreme Court
