Fox, who partially owns chain stores selling CBD products, stressed that legalization would curtail drug cartel activity by creating opportunities for ordinary Mexicans.
He told El Economista that the money would end up in the hands of marijuana cultivators, because of the legalization and regulation of this industry.
In that way, we can convert an illegal industry into an authorized industry, an industry that generates opportunities for Mexicans, Fox said.
Cannabis has been banned in Mexico for decades. In 2018, the Supreme Court of Mexico struck down the prohibition, at least as it applies to personal use. The ruling did not create a framework for legalization involving possession and cultivation limits or a regulated industry.
More than two-thirds of Washington, D.C. voters want marijuana legalized while at the same time they are firmly against the crackdown on the cannabis gift market, according to Marijuana Moment.
The new poll was created by a collaboration between the I - 71 Committee and Research Strategies.
According to Terrence White, chairman of the I- 71 Committee, it is abundantly clear that District voters do not want D.C. Councilmembers to act and punish our stores, adding that the punishment will cause more problems. D.C. officials postponed previously announced inspections of the District's cannabis stores earlier this month. A Joint Cannabis Task Force from the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration had planned to start inspections after a 30 day grace period.
76% of those asked said they wanted to see the District reform existing laws to create a more regulated market that allows sales.
Only 19% said the local government should shut down the gift economy marijuana market. A Las Vegas facility could face disciplinary action, including being deprived of a business license and the right to operate in the industry for a decade, after state regulators refused a motion from the company to dismiss the action.
The Cannabis Compliance Board on Tuesday rejected Lettucetest LLC's mission for dismissal in a unanimous vote. The regulatory body filed a complaint in 2011 about the move. The complaint said that state inspectors identified several violations during a visit to the facility, formerly known as Cannex Nevada LLC.
The company knowingly passed samples that were tainted by microbial contaminants and falsely inflated THC levels, increasing the product's value.
Instead of protecting consumers through accurate and honest testing, Cannex implemented testing processes that were designed to protect the monetary assets of their clients without regard for consumer safety, the board s complaint said earlier.
