After raising hopes that a legalization bill would be passed by the end of 2021, Mexico’s Congressional leaders late last week admitted that such a feat would not be accomplished. Full legalization may have to wait until 2022. 

Mexico’s Supreme Court (Suprema Corte de Justicia de la Nación, or SCJN) famously struck down the nation’s prohibition on cannabis in 2015, in 2018, and again this past summer.

So why is it still not fully legal to enjoy marijuana in the mota motherland? 

Because politicians are involved.
