In September 2020, Mexico United Against Crime brought together experts, regulators from around the world and affected populations for the #cannabislegalconjusticiasocial Forum. Since it is only with a social justice approach that you can benefit the populations most affected by prohibition, we provide you with various infographics, video clips and the report of the virtual forum: Legal Cannabis with Social Justice. Fortunately, the legal journals of the Restored Republic (1867-1876) and the Porfiriato (1876-1910) provide sources for such an analysis of post-imperial Mexico. A number of federal and state court decisions were printed in El Derecho, published from 1868 to 1902, and in El Foro, published from 1873 to 1895. The editors did not include all the country`s cases, but gave a sufficient sample, especially for Mexico City and its surroundings, to give us an idea of how the law has evolved through real decisions and not just through formal codes. Another case of this kind concerned the pledge of a house in favour of a Catholic fraternity, whose rights were considered extinguished by the court after forty years of prescription, as well as the nationalization of Church property in 1859. And this cooperation could be extended to national efforts in each country to promote the regularization and integration of migrants. Both the U.S. and Mexican governments have an interest in developing sustainable strategies to manage migration, ensure that migrants have a positive impact on their new homes, and address the long-term conditions that foster migration.

A final example of the legal consequences of regime change can be found in the United States.
