The Mexican Secretaría de Seguridad y Protección Ciudadana, who is responsible for overseeing federal police, intelligence agencies and prisons, shared a Twitter poll that asked citizens whether Mexico should legalize cannabis for adult use.
“Should the use of #marijuana for #recreational purposes be?” the tweet, translated from Spanish, asks.
Of the 86,996 votes 81 percent of respondents had responded that cannabis should be “legal,” with 19 percent saying “illegal.”
Since 1995, we’ve seen support for broad-based legalization in the U.S. catapult from just 25% to 66%. This same momentum can be seen outside the United States, more than 40 countries worldwide have given the green light to medical #cannabis, with two - Canada and Uruguay - allowing the recreational sale of the drug.
Which country is next? According to the Marijuana Moment publication the answer is pretty obvious: Mexico.
