What Happened to Brazil's Ruling on Drug Decriminalization?

Despite news last year suggesting Brazil's Supreme Court would rule imminently on whether the country should decriminalize low-level possession and use of drugs, all seems to have gone quiet. What happened? 

In August 2015, we were among those who published such articles, noting how the Supreme Court were discussing decriminalization against the backdrop of a growing chorus of voices calling for drug law reform. After the first three of the Court's 11 justices voted in favor of decriminalization in September, all looked set to move forward.

Higher Ground: You can’t put the smoke back in the bong

There is little doubt in my mind that marijuana — cannabis, weed, pot, ganja, skunk, bud, herb, sticky icky, mota (in Mexico), le shit (in France), whatever you want to call it — is on the road to legalization. There are a lot of reasons for that. One of them is the changes taking place around the world.

Brazil highway police seize 24.5 tons of marijuana

Brazil's Federal Highway Police seized 24.5 tons of marijuana in a truck that evidently entered the country from Paraguay, a record drug seizure for the institution, authorities reported Tuesday.

To date, the largest seizure of pot made by the Highway Police had been 21.5 tons in 2010, and the total amount seized so far in 2015 had been 4.5 tons, the institution said in a communique.

The shipment was intercepted on Monday afternoon on a highway in the southern state of Parana, which borders on Argentina and Paraguay, but the size of the haul was only determined on Tuesday after authorities weighed it.

With restrictions on medical marijuana, Brazil boycotting their future

Laws should never be made to block the access of patients to medicines

Since the beginning of colonization until the early 20th century, many Brazilians legally cultivated marijuana, including the government itself.

Uruguay, Chile, Canada, Israel, 24 US states, Austria, Belgium, Finland, Czech Republic, Spain, the Netherlands and Switzerland are examples of places in the world where it is possible to buy with relative ease medicines made of cannabis base extracts, plant or natural herb.

For Brazil, Decriminalizing Drugs Would Only Be a Partial Step Toward Justice

Decriminalizing drugs in Brazil would be a step forward for human rights, but the country still has to contend with its police.

Brazil’s Supreme Court justices are steadily issuing their votes in a seminal case that could determine whether or not the country will decriminalize the personal possession of drugs. Three of the 11 justices have voted in favor of decriminalization—two just for marijuana, one for all drugs—while a fourth last week gave himself more time to decide. Six votes are needed for decriminalization to succeed.
