Court confirms constitutionality of the Mexican soda tax
Last week the Mexican Supreme Court passed down its judgment on a writ of unconstitutionality (amparo) filed against the soda tax that went into effect in January 2014.
This unanimous judgment:
- Confirms the constitutionality of the tax
- Validates its rationale as a public health measure to discourage soda consumption
