After the approval in general and specifically the decriminalization and regulation of recreational personal use of marijuana in the Senate, it is estimated that the lower house will approve it, and with it, this practice opens the door to a economic spill for 2025 from 8,000 and 10,000 million dollars in Mexico.
According to Erick Ponce, president of the Grupo Promotor de la Industria de Cannabis (GPIC), who was interviewed by Business Insider México, legalization at the national level represents a great opportunity. By getting it, Mexico would be the third out of 50 to get the release of its use.
In addition, at the same time it will generate large sales for its legal consumption, also estimates that job creation will increase.
“You can reach generate between 100,000 to 250,000 jobs directly and indirectly”, Said the representative of the GPIC, before the approval scenario in the Chamber of Deputies.

In addition, it would be established that each citizen can have up to eight cannabis plants at home, which will be for your personal consumption. People who have them must comply with certain measures so as not to invade the privacy of their neighbors or minors.
The initiative states that recreational cannabis consumption clubs may be created. The Ministry of Health (SSa) will regulate them under a registry and operation through the new Institute that will be created, in which it is estimated that they should be integrated by up to 20 members.
It should be noted that it will be the Ministry of Health in charge of designing and operating measures to prevent and raise awareness to citizens of the health risks associated with the use of marijuana. And it will also promote the care and rehabilitation of consumers who wish to quit.
