"The rulings pave the way for adults to use marijuana in any way they see fit. We aren't just talking about recreational use," Froylán Enciso, a drug policy researcher at Mexico's social sciences institute, the CIDE, told UPI.

Mexico's Supreme Court legalizes cannabis for recreational use

on the heels of canada legalizing cannabis along comes mexico.
this leaves the united states as the only nation in north america with illegal cannabis at the federal level.
the wind of change is in the air and it smells like a skunk.
:-)

it's about time the united states does the same and make cannabis legal at the federal level.
we need to free up our police to handle other crimes. this would help take pressure of off an already undermanned police force.

I had always thought that it was pretty stupid to criminalize a plant.

Much less one with so many healing properties.

Let's hope the USA catches up with the rest of the continent.

Yeah,still waiting for NZ to pull its head out of its arse. We have a massive synthetic weed problem killing people,and do you think they will legalize a plant that can't kill you? Nope.

U.S. Maijuana Law Enforcement Cost. AT the least -- 1.2 BILLION dollars. Staggering the amount of money spent on controlling a plant which has nearly a zero chance of overdose, and a myriad of medicinal uses.

Stick your Reefer Madness in your pipe and smoke it.


If one was going to be worried about kids using harmful substances, worry about alcohol.

I used to like it when you got homegrown and hardly got a buzz. It was really cheap too, as long as it didn't taste like cow manure I was ok with it. To get most of the medical properties, you do not need it to give you a buzz. It is way to strong these days and very expensive. I do have CBD oil derived from hemp and it does have a nice mild calming effect which is good for my form of epilepsy. I wish it was cheaper though. If the legalization happens in Michigan, I may try to acquire some seeds that produce a mild effect, no buzz to speak of. It may be hard to get that kind of seed now, everyone wants kickass stuff. They will be trying to take our guns away because of cannabis use in the future, I will not use it if it threatens my ability to own guns. Even if cannabis is legalized, it is a psychoactive product and I believe the government can block our ability to own guns based on our using it. Even if it has no buzz effect. I can use soup and taurine to control my partial seizures, it is not necessary to use cannabis.

With Canada in the north, and Mexico in the south, seems like U.S.A. is between two "fires"

While Im pretty conservative on a lot of issues here is where I lean left. Got news for you kids and teenagers did use, in the 70's and 80's lots of them did. Loads in my high school lol and most of them have turned into fine law abiding adults, with families careers etc. So thats misnomer #1 and #2 if you have ever seen a kid with seizures be able to use the a few drops of oil and they magically go away and them and their families resume a normal life, or the cancer patient whos lost so much weight they dont have the strength to withstand chemo or radiation treatments, be able to eat gain weight and mute the agony of those treatments and survive or atleast dont spend their last few months without being racked with pain wasting away. #3 Alcohol is way worse destroys your liver. But big Pharma would rather send 10 million opioid pills to 3 pharmacies in West Virginia alone in a 18 month period, they got half of America hooked, and that crap is bad news addictive as anything and turns people into a shell of themselves and its expensive, its their cash cow. Think we have tried it big Pharma and big Alcohol's way for too long. Time to get into the 20th century on this issue, you regulate it, tax it make a bundle on it, but have it as an option for people suffering needlessly.

New Poll Finds Majority of Americans Have Smoked Marijuana


According to a new poll released Monday, 52 percent of Americans over 18 have tried marijuana at some point in their lives. The survey conducted by Yahoo News and Marist Poll found that not only have most adults in the U.S. smoked pot, 44 percent of those who tried it once still use it today.


That ship sailed a couple generations back.

bahahaha.....finally we are winning the War on Drugs.

One day it will all be legal, and the only thing the cartels can make money from are arms trafficking and people trafficking. But that would total a very VERY small amount of profit compared to the current profits from drugs.

Who's going to want to buy weed from a dealer when you can go to the supermarket and buy some, or better yet.....try out your greenthumb.

Want an opiate? Grow some poppies....

How about growing a Coca plant and making some Coca leaf tea. Much better than that hollywood drug that makes all the cartels rich.

Want a super pick-me-up? No...not ice......khat. Ok, it's no amphetamine but it sure beats coffee or red bull.

Can guarantee that all these plants in natural form are WAY WAY safer than their processed derivatives, and can be grown without much issue and best of all will certainly help humans understand how to balance their habits with nature.

Great news! Now we just need to get on board now being sandwiched in-between legality. Unfortunately the problem Canadians are going to be going through may be the same for their citizens as well.


As Politico points out, these rules may be even more problematic for those working in Canada’s new weed industry, which is expected to bring in billions of dollars. They’d be considered drug traffickers by the U.S. government. Customs and Border Patrol agents often ask those crossing the border what they do for a living. “If you work for the industry, that is grounds for inadmissibility,” [Todd Owen, the executive assistant commissioner for the Customs and Border Protection's (CBP) Office of Field Operations] told Politico.

Investors in the industry may face a ban too.
