On February 22, 2019, the Supreme Court ruled the absolute prohibition of marihuana in Mexico unconstitutional. A bill permitting the regularization of cannabis is currently up for debate in Congress. While legislative changes are well underway, there are still a number of challenges in terms of cultural awareness, particularly the stigmatization facing both marihuana users and cultivators. Together with the Hemispheric Institute, a group of Mexican artists are developing a campaign that uses humor and art to change perceptions and stigmatizing attitudes. Cartoons and animations will be distributed in Mexico City and throughout the country with the help of publicity on public transportation and in the various State Secretariats.

Jacques Servin began his current adulthood by inserting a swarm of kissing men to a shoot-'em-up video game just before it shipped to store shelves. Finding himself fired and momentarily famous, he opted to go into weird activism. Since then, as co-founder of the Yes Men (, he's worked for entities such as Exxon, Dow, Monsanto, and the US Chamber of Commerce, as well as for the New York Times, the New York Post, and the Washington Post, all without their approval.

Arturo Hernández was born in Mexico City. He is the mastermind behind “Supercívicos.” He is a true Chilango (born and raised in Mexico City), and was one of the first VJs for MTV Latinoamérica.

His production company was in charge of producing Comedy Central Latinoamérica’s ROAST with actor Hector Suárez. “Houston tenemos un programa” (Houston, We Have a Program), was one of the earlier iterations of “Supercívicos,” which became an internet phenomenon after it was canceled for its high level of political critique. @arturoelpantera
