The Mexican Supreme Court recently ruled cannabis prohibition unconstitutional - cannabis in Mexico has been decriminalized. Great news - with USA now flanked by major trading partners, Canada and Mexico, that now have some form of cannabis legalization or decriminalization. I believe the USA Fed and State governments are already planning what to do with the tax revenue, seem's it's now just the long and inevitable process of working out the details of cannabis legalization. Even the NFL is positioning itself to remove cannabis from it's substance abuse policy.
Cannabis News Stories this Week
"Mexican Supreme Court Strikes Down Cannabis Prohibition Laws in Mexico"
The Mexican Supreme Court recently struck down the cannabis prohibition laws in Mexico. The two cases that were ruled on were brought to the court by the plaintiffs requesting an "amparo". An "amparo" is a request for constitutional protection from prosecution. One of the plaintiffs wanted to grow his own cannabis, another plaintiff wanted to consume recreational cannabis. The court agreed that their constitutional rights needed to be protected and ruled in favor of plaintiffs - effectively ending Mexico's prohibition on cannabis.
"Missouri Police Searching For Marijuana In A Stage 4 Cancer Patient's Hospital Room | TIME"
Medical cannabis will be legal in Missouri in a few months, no later than June. Police search the man's room after someone reported smelling cannabis. The man denies smoking cannabis and feels his rights were violated. He has pancreatic cancer stage 4 - one of the most deadly. The hospital and police could not be reached for comment. Legalize it - one less excuse for violation of citizens.
"Medical marijuana choices expand"
(News 5 Cleveland)
For the two months that medical cannabis has been available in Ohio, it's only been available in bud form. Grow Ohio cannabis company has recently been licensed by the state for the manufacturing of cannabis creams, oils, lotions, capsules, edibles with it's new co² cannabis extraction setup. The hope to be up and running by the end of the month with products appearing on the medical dispensaries shelves shortly after that.
"The NFL May Consider Changing Rules Around Cannabis Use"
The NFL is ready to relax it's policy on cannabis usage - ready to make concessions with the players union and eliminate cannabis from it's substance abuse policy. There have been players that have been disciplined for cannabis use. Some fans are worried key players might be more likely to sign with a team that is in a state that has already legalized cannabis. I could see how cannabis muscle relaxation and pain relief strains, and CBD oils and rubs would be more desirable than prescription drugs and pain relievers - especially with side effects being potentially having a less adverse affect on the players abilities and long term health.

"Cannabis News - More Progress in Alaska | Ep. 353 | 03-13-2019"
(The Marijuana Times)
The Marijuana Times, cannabis news reports that The New Mexico house has passed a flawed recreational cannabis legalization bill- requires proof of purchase of cannabis that is possessed. This is the same as Canada, it's about the tax dollars, you technically have to have your cannabis in the legally purchased and taxed container it came in - if you are searched for some reason. The MT also reports that Alaska adopts rules for on site cannabis consumption and retail shops - the State wide Alaska Marijuana Control Board regulations had been approved back in December. Alaska legalized recreational cannabis back in 2015 (Source
"Cannabis industry calls for legal pot bars"
(ABC 10 News)
It has been more than a year since the first legal cannabis sales in San Diego. There was 6.3 million dollars extra dollars for the city of San Diego last year from the 5% tax of the legal pot shops in the city - of course the money spending government like that. Currently people can only legally smoke if they own their own property, or if their apartment lease allows it. The industry would like the city to consider a place from consumers to use their cannabis - "a pot version of a hooka bar".
"Duterte now against legalization of medical marijuana"
(Manila Bulletin Online)
President Duterte of the Philippines is taking the stance that some plants are bad - kind of like someone saying cannabis is harmless cause it's a plant, then someone replying that poison ivy is a plant, is that good ? - wrong argument. Duterte has shut himself off from the possibility of cannabis legalization. "Not in my time .. some other president," he states. He admits that he is ignorant of the research and that he does not read it, and that he does not intend to legalize it.
