Mexico Marijuana; Deputies say that adjustments and modifications will be made in this legislative session


The initiative of Senator Olga Sanchez Cordero on the regulation of marijuana is perfectible because it presents some edges that must be corrected before its arrival in the Chamber of Deputies; and once it lands in the lower house, the adjustments will continue, said federal deputies Maximiliano Ruiz Arias and Lucinda Sandoval Soberanes.

Ruiz Arias, the representative of district 1, stressed that secondary laws can strengthen the proposal of former Minister Sanchez Cordero because there are people dedicated to planting, cultivation, production, and distribution, and as the last link in the chain is the consumer.

Likewise, to truly involve the Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (Sagarpa) or the Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks (Cofepris) so that they can fulfill their obligations in a real way.

At the same time
, the federal deputy Lucinda Sandoval Soberanes explained that the bill “is not yet in the federal Congress”, a document that will be given due review for discussion.

The topic is fresh. As you walk, we will announce it in the media. All points must be checked. Point by point will be discussed in the federal Congress. We do not have the initiative, with this I say that we have not reviewed it yet ». The militant of Morena stressed that there is still time.

Finally, the federal deputy Jesus Fernando Garcia Hernandez clarified that in the regulation of the production chain of marijuana touch edges that currently do not exist, such as packaging, advertising, and points of consumption, so the results will be effective and tangible.

Exemplified with the case of the American Union, where some states earmark part of the profit to the creation of rehabilitation centers for young addicts, involving Sagarpa, the health sector, and federal security agencies.

“The plants will have to be registered in an anonymous register. The proposal establishes rules: from the location of the points of sale that the marijuana outlets will have, which are not near the educational centers. They must grant the license to those who have an acceptance and approval as citizens, “he concluded.
