When it comes to countries pushing for adult-use legalization in Central America, Mexico is likely the first nation that comes to mind, not Belize. This month Belize’s Minister of New Growth Industries, Hon. Kareem Musa introduced an adult-use legalization measure. Belize’s current cannabis law was originally enacted in 2017. It was born out of a reform measure that amended the previous law to decriminalize possession of up to 10 grams of cannabis. Consuming cannabis in the privacy of one’s home is currently legal in Belize, however, there’s no legal adult-use industry. That may be changing. Belize’s Minister of New Growth Industries specifically wants to pass legislation that would legalize sales and boost Belize’s economy. Fortunately, the leader of the opposition party in Belize’s government, Hon. Shyne Barrow is also in support of legalization. Much like in other countries, legalization has bipartisan support.
