A bill to legalize marijuana in Mexico is being delayed yet again. Although the Senate approved the cannabis legislation last month, leaders in the Chamber of Deputies agreed on Wednesday to request another deadline extension from the nation’s Supreme Court. In late 2018, the court deemed the prohibition on personal use and cultivation of marijuana unconstitutional and told lawmakers to formally end criminalization by October 2019. The deadline has since been moved back at lawmakers’ request several times, most recently to December 15. Now, legislative leaders are asking the Supreme Court to give them until February to get the cannabis bill across the finish line, Milenio reported.
