The deadline for Congress to regulate various uses of cannabis extended again

Today the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) again extended, until April 30, 2021, the deadline for the Congress to issue a law regulating the various uses of cannabis. As we anticipated, it was very difficult for the Congress to issue a new law that could satisfactorily address the interests and expectations of the social, political and economic sectors involved by December 15, 2020. The SCJN based the extension granted on the health emergency caused by Covid-19 and on the need for the Deputies Chamber to have sufficient time to complete its work.
