REUTERS/Carlos JassoMEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican church and civic leaders on Monday canceled an annual gathering that attracts massive crowds of Catholic pilgrims to protect people amid an intensifying coronavirus outbreak. The feast day of the Virgin of Guadalupe celebrated on Dec. 12 typically features lavish pageantry at her namesake basilica in the north of Mexico City where throngs of pilgrims arrive on their knees in prayer. But this year the festivities will move online, according to a statement issued by the bishops’ conference and city government. The closure will run from Dec. 10 through Dec. 13, and a security perimeter will be erected to ensure compliance.

REUTERS/Carlos Jasso/File PhotoMEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Sunday called on the Group of 20 (G20) major economies to improve external debt conditions for poor and middle-income countries, as the global economy suffers a recession from the coronavirus crisis. The leftist president has warned against taking on debt and bailing out companies, even as Mexico’s economy is set to contract 10% this year, its worst slump since the Great Depression. “Our proposal consists in ... making a reality the commitment to remove sums of debt and debt-servicing to the poor nations of the world,” Lopez Obrador said in a video as part of the G20 summit. Lopez Obrador also said Mexico’s economy is meeting the government’s expectation of V-shaped recovery, and projected that by next March the number of formal jobs will bounce back to 20.5 million, the amount before the pandemic hit.

REUTERS/Carlos Jasso/File PhotoMEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Saturday urged fellow leaders from the 20 biggest world economies (G20) to steer clear of debt and bailouts in the efforts to handle the COVID-19 crisis that has caused a global recession. Within G20, Mexico is the country with the least fiscal support spending as a percentage of gross domestic product. “Avoid taking on debt and even less so if it’s for the benefit of a few, at the cost of the suffering of many,” he said. Lopez Obrador also called on countries to avoid “authoritative measures” such as confinement and curfews, and to have more trust in people to act responsibly in curbing the spread of the novel coronavirus.

REUTERS/Carlos JassoMEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s Senate approved a sweeping cannabis legalization bill in a lopsided 82 to 18 vote on Thursday, paving the way for the creation of the world’s largest legal marijuana market if the initiative passes the next hurdle in the lower house of Congress. Lawmakers are rushing to secure approval before the end of the current congressional session in mid-December. If given the green light, the law would allow the recreational, scientific, medical and industrial uses of cannabis, a major shift in the country where drug cartel violence in recent years has claimed over 100,000 lives.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s Senate approved a landmark cannabis legalization bill in a landslide vote on Thursday, paving the way for the creation of the world’s largest legal marijuana market if the initiative passes the next hurdle in the lower house of Congress. Marijuana leaves are seen next to Mexico's Senate building at the protest cannabis garden of the Cannabico Mexican Movement in Mexico City, Mexico November 19, 2020. Lopez Obrador’s left-of-center Morena party, which backed the initiative, holds a majority in both chambers of Congress with its allies. Weed companies have expressed interest in a future Mexican legal market, including Canada's Canopy Growth WEED.TO and The Green Organic Dutchman TGOD.TO, as well as a unit of California-based Medical Marijuana Inc MJNA.PK. Sales to adults in authorized businesses would be allowed, provided the product abides by maximum levels of psychoactive ingredients.
