It said the drug could be used by cancer patients and those suffering from AIDS, sclerosis, glaucoma and some forms of epilepsy.

The bill that seeks to amend and expand the General Healthcare Law was passed by Senate majority on Tuesday and will now go before President Enrique Pena Nieto.

The parliament’s decision has wrapped up more than two years of debates on legalizing marijuana. It was sparked off after Mexico’s top court allowed four people to use the drug for recreational purposes.
