July 10, 2018

On Wednesday, July 4, Mexico's Supreme Court ruled that the 2017 reform to legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes establishes a solution for legally acquiring cannabis seed for recreational use.

Mexico City - The Second Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (Suprema Corte de Justicia de la Nación, or SCJN) has endorsed the fact that the 2017 reform to legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes may also benefit those who want to consume it recreationally.

During the session on Wednesday, July 4, the members of the chamber, with the exception of Margarita Luna Ramos, who was not present, approved the project that establishes a solution that will make it possible to acquire cannabis seed to be used for recreational purposes in a legal manner.

The project was carried out by the minister José Fernando Franco González Salas in an injunction under review promoted by three persons who previously obtained a permit to consume marijuana for recreational purposes, but who did not have authorization to buy the seeds to exercise their right.

The ruling establishes that the Federal Commission for Protection against Sanitary Risks (Cofepris) must issue a special permit for the acquisition or transfer of the seed.

With this, the beneficiaries of the injunction will be able to legally buy the seed from the producers or drugstores authorized by the Ministry of Health (SSA) according to the 2017 reform to the General Law of Health, by which the use of marijuana was legalized for medicinal purposes.
