Legal Pot In Mexico: Everything You Need to Know
On June 19th, 2017, Mexico legalized medical marijuana, or more specifically, "pharmacological derivatives of cannabis" to be regulated and studied by the Ministry of Health.

Axios broke that down into more consumer-scale prices, citing BDS Analytics.
