Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto recently explained that it makes no sense for the USA and Mexico to have different policies on cannabis.  Many in Mexico interpret this as a signal that Mexico is politically ready to follow the USA and start legalizing and regulating cannabis in the way that the USA now does in 20+ states.
