On Wednesday Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled that an absolute ban on recreational use of marijuana was unconstitutional, leaving it to lawmakers to eventually come up with a way to regulate the drug. 

The court in a statement said “The effects caused by marijuana do not justify an absolute prohibition on its consumption” in relation to the ruling. 

The court ordered federal health regulator COFEPRIS to authorize people seeking the right to use marijuana to do so personally, “albeit without allowing them to market it, or use other narcotics or psychotropic drugs.”

Officials from the government of incoming President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrado have indicated they could take steps to legalize marijuana quickly as part of a strategy to curb crime and poverty.
