Is Mexico Legalizing Marijuana Soon?

Yes. Finally it is sure looking that way. We are calling it “High expectations coming true.” Mexico legalizing Marijuana could happen before the shrimp season ends in mid-March. And if or when it does, the country will have a new claim to fame. Mexico is going to become the world’s largest legal weed market.

Many of those visiting south of the border, will be receiving this as welcomed news. Mexico legalizing marijuana adds a sense of excitement and adventure to escaping stress for some fun in the sun.

Imagine legally enjoying a mellow high while laying on Sandy Beach in a chaise lounge. Just you and your buzz watching and listening to the sounds of the waves. There’s also the scenario of quenching your thirsts for partying. Picture hanging by the pool downing tasty, no-calorie cannabis drinks. Add more entertaining reasons for coming to Rocky Point Mexico. Get what you need including weed.

The idea of Mexico legalizing marijuana is nothing new. In fact, it is not even a recent momentum thing. The pot sticking points have been another example of  “mañana.”

Mañana” is the mindset or saying in Mexico used in describing procrastination. It means putting off an event in the present moment. However, it may definitely be happening sometime in the indefinite future.

The match was lit back in 2017 with Mexico legalizing marijuana for medicinal use. Then the following year, the Mexican Supreme Court ruled banning the plant and recreational use of it was unconstitutional.

Since then, deadlines and delays have been coming and going. But things are different now. An immovable deadline is looming large. It is because the Supreme Court issued Congress a directive to officially legalize marijuana by April 30. Growing signs this is a burning issue are out there in plain sight.

Federal regulators have been pushing hard and fast in establishing an industry structure. The anxious companies will need to pay up and apply for licenses. This will give them the rights to bring cannabis products to the market. Reports are claiming the Mexican federal government is already preparing for the new bill to be passed. And the new reality will be ready to roll right away. The beginning of licenses could come as early as June 2021.

Mexico legalizing marijuana has the backing of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. Legislation was passed by voting in the Mexican Senate in November. Sources say the Congress will be discussing the matter and approving the bill as early as next week.

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox is also involved. He is part of a group eager for a chance at cashing in on the growing cannabis opportunity in the country. Fox and Friends will have plenty of competition in the world’s biggest weed market.

The cannabis industry’s global leaders are waiting in the wings. They have a major case of the munchies wanting a taste of the profits. A large company such as Canada’s Canopy Growth Corporation will seem to have an inside track. It’s major investor is Constellation Brands, the makers of Modelo and Corona. If you go to Rocky Point, you see how these beers are widely popular.

And then we have the wildest card of all waiting to be known. It is anybody’s guess how the powerful drug cartels will react to Mexico legalizing marijuana.
