In 1991, Medellín, Colombia, was the murder capital of the world. But when I visited in October of this year, I was exploring a city of progress and innovation. That’s because over the past 20 years, social initiatives, like the construction of libraries and schools in the poorest areas and infrastructure projects like the metro and its metro cable system, have helped revolutionize Medellín. That spirit of innovation and change is helping Colombia’s legal cannabis scene develop—not just in the city—but around the entire country.
Since a Constitutional Court ruling in 1994, personal use possession of cannabis and other drugs in Colombia has been decriminalized. However, it wasn’t until 2012 that the government officially decriminalized personal use possession, and instead of detaining users, began encouraging treatment.
