Medical Marijuana is now legal in Mexico
Mexico’s health ministry on Tuesday 12 of January, published rules to regulate the use of medicinal cannabis, a major step in a broader reform to create the world’s largest legal cannabis market in the Latin American country.
The new regulation was signed off by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and will now allow pharmaceutical companies to begin doing medical research on cannabis products.
The cannabis reform taking place includes the recreational use of marijuana and will create what would be the world’s biggest national cannabis market in terms of population.
The new medicinal rules state companies that wish to carry out research have to obtain permission from the Mexican health regulator, COFEPRIS, and this research has to be done in strictly controlled, independent laboratories.
“The standard of regulation is very, very high,” said Luisa Conesa, a lawyer and pro-cannabis activist who spearheaded legal challenges that led to the decriminalization of medical cannabis.
“(The regulation) is not aimed at patients growing their own cannabis, it is aimed at pharmaceutical companies producing pharmaceutical derivatives of cannabis which are classified as controlled substances that need a prescription,” he said.
Did You Know the Majority of Homes in Mexico Are Not Built by Professionals?
If you spend much time in Mexico, you can’t help but notice that many of the homes in the small towns and rural areas appear to be in a state of mid-construction. It’s not uncommon to see unfinished block walls and rebar sticking up out of the roofs on numerous houses in any given neighborhood.
When my husband and I first moved to Mexico fourteen years ago, we really didn’t give it much thought, but when we started making friends with some of the locals, we learned that many of them were slowly constructing their own homes.
Back in the States when someone says their building their home, they usually mean that they hired a professional or several professionals (subcontractors) to construct it. But in Mexico, when someone tells you that, chances are that they’re doing the work themselves or with the help of family members.
It’s estimated that approximately 70% of Mexicans construct their own homes and that approximately 64% of the homes in the country were constructed without the supervision of an architect or engineer.
That’s certainly something to keep in mind if you’re buying a preexisting home in Mexico. You can’t take for granted that it was built by professionals or even that it was built to code.
In researching this particular topic, we came across several free online courses designed to teach people in Mexico the fundamentals of building their own homes.
The best one, by far, was created by the Fundación Carlos Slim. It consists of 65 videos, 33 PDFs, and numerous quizzes. The lesson plan is very impressive. You can check it out here:
Curso de Autoconstrucción
Note- You don’t have to create an account to view the course. Just close out the sign-in box when it appears.
In our case, we chose the easy route. We bought a home in a gated development that was built by a reputable developer, but we do know several expats who chose to buy preexisting houses that were constructed in a more informal manner.
No matter which way you choose to go, the advice is the same — always do your research and never buy sight unseen.

The world is in the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic. As WHO and partners work together on the response — tracking the pandemic, advising on critical interventions, distributing vital medical supplies to those in need— they are racing to develop and deploy safe and effective vaccines.
Vaccines save millions of lives each year. Vaccines work by training and preparing the body’s natural defenses — the immune system— to recognize and fight off the viruses and bacteria they target. If the body is exposed to those disease-causing germs later, the body is immediately ready to destroy them, preventing illness.
There are currently more than 50 COVID-19 vaccine candidates in trials. WHO is working in collaboration with scientists, business, and global health organizations through the ACT Accelerator to speed up the pandemic response. When a safe and effective vaccine is found, COVAX (led by WHO, GAVI and CEPI) will facilitate the equitable access and distribution of these vaccines to protect people in all countries. People most at risk will be prioritized. While we work towards rolling out a safe and effective vaccine fairly, we must continue the essential public health actions to suppress transmission and reduce mortality.
Effective January 26, all airline passengers to the United States ages two years and older must provide a negative COVID-19 viral test taken within three calendar days of travel. Alternatively, travelers to the U.S. may provide documentation from a licensed health care provider of having recovered from COVID-19 in the 90 days preceding travel. Check the CDC website for additional information. This requirement does not apply to travelers entering the United States by land or sea or to children under two years of age. It applies to U.S. citizens, as well as foreign nationals, regardless of vaccination status.
