Mexico is one of the biggest producers of cannabis in Latin America. It is a clear example of the failures of prohibition and the war on drugs, with Mexico being one of the most violent countries in the world.
But now important steps towards legalization of cannabis are being made.
For the first time in history, ExpoWeed was held at the World Trade Center in Mexico City.
Cannabis News Network was represented at Expoweed Mexico and got to talk with Fernando Belaunzarán ( PRD, Party of the Democratic Revolution), Pepe Rivera (Rector Mexican Institute of Cannabis), Emma Rodríguez (President EPSD) and Jaziel Espinosa (Founder CSC Xochipili) on the state of cannabis politics, medicinal cannabis developments, cannabis industry and cannabis social clubs.
