Mexico

Similarly in Mexico, you’ll find a de-facto legalization of weed. Possession of up to 5 grams was decriminalized in 2009, followed by the legalization of personal cultivation by a Supreme Court case in 2015, which stated 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.” Medicinal use was made legal in 2016, and many think that full legalization for recreational usage will be soon to follow.

This was my last trip before moving to the Czech Republic. It was great we visited San Miguel de Allende and Ciudad de Mexico. But as a tacos lover, the highlight of that trip was eating tacos every day.
