“It’s a watershed in our country because the marijuana issue in our country has been very complicated. What makes this significant is the departure from a policy of prohibiting all cannabis-related conduct,” Fabian Aguinaco, the family’s lawyer, said on Tuesday.
“The writ of amparo is a judicial mechanism in Mexico that dates back to the mid-19th century and is intended to ensure protection for individuals’ constitutional rights.”
The family argued that the law was unconstitutional because it violated human rights such as the “right to dignity” and the “freedom to live without pain.”
In his ruling, the judge said doctors must draw up a report, monitor the patient and determine the appropriate dose.
