Undoubtedly, drug war has been one of the main problems in Mexico for over fifteen years; in fact, from 2006 until now, there have been more than 120,000 deaths related to drug trafficking. Besides, factors such as poverty and scarce well-paid job opportunities are also the main reasons for that social situation.

In order to put an end to these problems – they are striking the country, marijuana legalization is being proposed as a way to stop drug-war violence spiral, not because it would be a coup against drug-lord business – their main revenue come from cocaine, not marijuana, but because Mexican economy would be boosted, roughly generating a $6,000 million industry.



Regarding CannaMexico World Summit celebration, in Guanajuato, on May, the 30th and 31st, the former Mexican president, Vicente Fox Quesada, has attended a press conference, stating as follows:

“Public opinion has a clear point of view; they want to stop death and violence: this is Mexico number one request“.

A mission statement by a former president of the government who approves of cannabis legalization; in fact, CannaMexico World Summit is one of the most important national cannabis events; a fair to share opinions pro cannabis regularization and legalization, for leisure and medical purposes. Besides, scientific proof on consumption benefits and potential markets – and other legalization side factors – are made known.

As a conclusion, the United Mexican States seem to aim at becoming a new member of the select group of cannabis-legalizing countries.
