Legalization of Medical Cannabis in Mexico Creates Opportunities For EAPH OTCMKTS
Mexico Approves Medical Marijuana
Mexico’s Lower House of Congress recently passed a bill that legalizes the use of medical marijuana and scientific research. In particular, the bill classifies the controversial psychoactive component of marijuana — tetrahydrocannabinol or THC — as “therapeutic”. The move is akin to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) rescheduling marijuana to a controlled substance that has therapeutic value for patients.
“The ruling eliminates the prohibition and criminalization of acts related to the medicinal use of marijuana and its scientific research, and those relating to the production and distribution of the plant for these purposes,” read a Congressional statement.
The bill will now be sent to President Enrique Pena Nieto who is expected to sign it into law. While Pena Nieto was once a vocal opponent to legalization, his viewpoint has shifted to view drug use as a “public health problem” where users should not be criminalized. He even proposed a bill last year that would have permitted Mexicans to carry up to an ounce of marijuana, but that measure has since stalled in Congress.
