Last week we reported that Mexico’s Supreme Court was considering taking a major step toward adult use cannabis legalization. Lawyer Ulrich Richter sued for his right grow and consume cannabis, arguing that prohibition infringed on his human right to the free development of personality. On April 11th the Court ruled in Richter’s favor, 4-1. As we explained in our original coverage, this right does not extend to all Mexicans, but if the Supreme Court makes the same ruling five times, then it changes federal law in the Latin American nation. Richter’s case was the second time the Supreme Court ruled that cannabis prohibition is unconstitutional. Therefore, only three more similar rulings are needed to make legal weed in Mexico a reality.
