Cannabis in Mexico is illegal since 1920, but personal possession is decriminalized since 2009. Under the new law, Mexicans are free to privately possess and consume up to five grams of marijuana.

In November 2015, the Supreme Court ruled that four individuals from the Mexican Society for Responsible and Tolerant Personal Use would be permitted to grow and smoke their own marijuana. The court voted 4-1 that prohibiting people from growing the drug for consumption was unconstitutional as it violated the human right to the free development of one's personality.

In December 2016, Mexico's senate voted to legalise medical marijuana. However, the bill 'must also be passed by Mexico’s lower house to become law'. In April 2017, Mexico's chamber of deputies approved the senate's notion thus legalizing medical marijuana.
