MX: Supreme Court of Justice grants forth extension to enact cannabis legalization reform

Mexico's Supreme Court of Justice has extended the deadline to give lawmakers more time to legalize cannabis in the country, even though last month the Senate passed a bill to legalize cannabis nationwide ahead of the previous deadline of December 15th. 

"Said declaration indicates that the absolute prohibition of recreational or recreational use of cannabis provided for by the General Health Law is unconstitutional; that the absolute prohibition of the recreational use of cannabis is not a necessary measure to protect health and public order; and that the absolute prohibition of recreational cannabis use is not a proportionate measure to protect health and public order. For the above reasons, the Congress of the Union must carry out the corresponding reforms," the press release reads. 

Now, legislators have until April 30th to execute the reform. This is the fourth time that an extension has been granted.  First it was October 2019, then April 2020, then December 2020 and now April 2021.
