WASHINGTON (CIRCA via MOBIUS.LAB) — The legalization of cannabis in California is having an impact on Mexico.

Middle-class Mexicans and Americans living in Tijuana are illegally importing cannabis from California.

The cross-border cannabis occurrence has been taking place for about 20 years. It's easy to import because cars going southbound aren't often stopped, and border patrols aren't looking for edibles and oils.

San Diego dispensaries are noticing 10 percent of their sales are to Mexican tourists. Mexicans see crossing the border as a safer, easier option; the quality is better and there is no bloodshed by cartels associated with their weed.

Recently, the Mexican government passed a law to allow the import of medical cannabis up to 1 percent THC, and is expanding research on the benefits of medical marijuana.

Mexico may soon be the next Latin American country to legalize cannabis.
