Mexican Supreme Court Rules Prohibition of Cannabis Unconstitutional

(ANTIMEDIA) San Diego, CA — The Mexican Supreme Court just paved the way for nationwide cannabis legalization after voting 4 to 1 that prohibition of personal consumption and cultivation of the plant violates constitutional rights.

In fact, the highest court in the land concluded that cannabis prohibition “violates the right to free development of one’s personality,” as the Drug Policy Alliance stated Wednesday in a press release.

“This vote by Mexico’s Supreme Court is extraordinary for two reasons: it is being argued on human rights grounds and it is taking place in one of the countries that has suffered the most from the war on drugs,” explained Hannah Hetzer, Senior Policy Manager of the Americas for the Alliance. “Uruguay became the first country to legalize marijuana, Canada is expected soon to follow suit, medical marijuana initiatives are spreading throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, and marijuana is legal in a number of U.S. states. Now with this landmark decision out of Mexico, it is clear that the Americas are leading the world in marijuana reform.”

Mexico’s first legal medical marijuana patient made headlines around the world in September when her parents were granted the right to treat her Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome with cannabidiol medication. Eight-year-old “Grace” had suffered nearly 400 epileptic seizures daily — preventing her from walking, attending school, or even speaking.

This ruling by the highest Mexican court further weakens the brutal and notorious drug cartels that have plagued the country with violence, paves the way for legal recreational use, and — hopefully — sets the example for its northern neighbor, the United States.

  3. @realDonaldTrump DENUNCIA CIUDADANA PGR Se le asigno la clave: RAMO/TDag4VglX1 para el seguimiento de la misma. Soy Ciudadano Americano y renuncie a la Ciudadanía mexicana en los EU, presente un proceso de bancarrota ante esta situación en mi contra en el Nashville, TN. Contacte a la Embajada de los Estados Unidos. Presento mis declaraciones en EU por alrededor de hace 10 años. Entre Estados Unidos y México hay tratados internacionales relacionados principalmente al TLC que ustedes deben de cumplir como el caso de TechMahindra e Infosys Technologies así como del robo de mi tecnología por el Gobierno Mexicano. Puede contactar a mi abogado en los EU para el proceso de bancarrota que se llevo acabo. Por otro lado, como usted debe de saber estoy discapacitado acorde al SASH en San Antonio, TX y al nivel federal en los EU, es un delito lo que esta haciendo el IMSS-Infosys Technologies-DEA en mi contra. Además mi residencia es en los EU y no en México, no he solicitado pasaporte mexicano desde entonces y en el Consultado de México en EU fue negada la doble Ciudadanía a mí hija, siendo un delito criminal mexicano también quejando con mi Gobierno, para parar o disminuir el otorgamiento de Ciudadanía Americana a mexicanos de origen dado sus arbitrariedad en mi caso. Además tengo presentada denuncia por fraude en “Real Estate” o de Bienes Raices con el IRS en Estados Unidos, y al parecer hay mexicanos involucrados en fraudes de este tipo allá. Debo de incluir que también estoy siguiendo el tráfico de niños dado que mi hija fue prácticamente secuestrada, también hay mexicanos vinculados a estos hechos. Debo también decir que diversas denuncias han sido presentadas en contra del Gobierno Mexicanas y recibidas en la Comisión Nacional de Derechos Humanos así como a la Comisión de Derechos Humanos del DF ante todo este acoso por parte de ustedes y presecución, le pido de la manera más atenta se dirija al Gobierno Americano, dado que soy Ciudadano americano.
    Debo de incluir que existe denuncia en la SHCP al caso de Gadisa Computación S.A de C:V que no se ha resuelto acorde a derecho antes de haya dejado México para seguir con el proceso legal de inmigración en los EU como ustedes ya han de saber. Esto involucra penalmente a Magistrados, jueces, MP entre otros. El Gobierno Mexicano me debe bastante dinero en gastos que he hecho en México, y como Ciudadano Americano me deben de pagar, tengo ya de varios años en los que he estado en México.

    Pregunta: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CyRq4PULFXM#t=24 I think that these situation have been to me since I was studying in UPIICSA, even a militar studying there contacted mehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kdfvv6vIbIc As illuminaties, they were ready to take of me my industrial property development, they are using the stack stalking to kill me in this way ORACLE, SAP will continue having copyrights that they belonged to them, they are mine, I am the creator. Indians want to replace industrial engineering with their own IT fantasys. Ergonomic studies, that it is why they want to destroy industrial engineering in the Stateshttp://lnkd.in/buiXGXX To understand Activity Based Costing, you need to have a PhD´s degree and master´s and bachelor´s dregree in industrial engineering, business and accountancy to understand how to make it applicable using SAP. I have lot of experience in that, but it is something that nobody understand because of the low level of the SAP FICO consultants that are coming from India. I studied at UPIICSA when we have the best of best in industrial engineering and systems world wide professors. In my opinion, my thesis are the discovering and opening of industrial engineering or Operational Management as a sciencehttps://www.facebook.com/notes/adalberto-cervantes-rodriguez/how-did-oracle-steal-my-ideas/484337798305612 Why are the ERP like SAP, Oracle and others a fraud? Because there is no software capable of being used in all kind of companies, it is a fantasy, and less probable when there is no Activity Based Costing applied in all the cases. The indian fraud in ERP technology is affecting the mayor investors in the wold. Industrial Engineering or Operational Management is a science per se, and it can not be eliminates because of the indian nightmares http://www.proceso.com.mx/?p=351991 . Para mi entender, quien maneja el mundo son los Corporativos, y las familias como los Rothschild, si bien han ganado mucho con ésto, también han sido defraudados con los ahora CIA millonarios. dejando los Corporativos como mafias mundiales, es éste momento los grandes capitales desearán acabar con todo ésto, dado que la caja negra del IT de la India, no puede esconder más estos fraudes. ¿Dondé truena la tecnología ERP india? la practican sin seguir cambios legales, fiscales que deben de seguir las empresas en los diversos países, no aplican la técnica ABC porque la desconocen totalmente, consultores de muy bajo nivel con memoria fotográfica , entre otros. It is time that IT ended the hippy era in software and hardware, people from India, photographic memory among others, and analyzed and done more with science to much mistakes in some years almost destroying humanity in all senses. It seems more dangerous than an atomic bomb. Creo que los verdaderos científicos no son controlados por Corporativos, se están llendo de EU por el obscurantismo que traen por ejemplo la gente de la india en IT, o la matanza de Bill Gates con sus vacunas. Es un ciclo, vivimos como en la época de Galileo, hasta que la ciencia de nueva cuenta florezca. No tienen ni idea, están perdidos, yo soy mas real. Estamos como con Galileo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6Sxv-sUYtM#t=21.
