Uruguay set to become first country to legalize marijuana trade

South American country Uruguay is set to become the first country in the world to allow its citizens to grow, sell, buy and smoke marijuana. The country's Senate began its final debate on the issue today Tuesday Dec. 10th and claim they want to legalize it in a bid to take the business from criminals.

If this bill, which has the support of majority of the House and the president of the country, is passed, Uruguay will be the first country to legalize a trade that is illegal everywhere else in the world.

After the trade is made legal, Uruguay will then draft regulations imposing state control over the cultivation and distribution of marijuana. Anyone who wants to go into the business would have to be licensed and registered, with government monitors keeping tabs to enforce limits, such as the 40 grams a month that any adult will be able to buy at pharmacies for any reason.

Mehn dis is one of d best News ave heard today.@least ave seen one country dat has jst legalise wat is real and is being used by almost 70% of people. How I wish sum countries will come to understnd or realise d need to make dis legal in dier country. Am not A marijuana taker O but @least I knw I leave in a society where by @least 50% of d people take it dats if am not mistaken. Infant, d most anoying part of it is dat sum police men will arrest sum people over it nd will still end up smokin it. #mctewwwww#.....Gold

They have lost it,it will be correct to say that the bunch of parliamentarians parading d hallowed chambers are criminals and nothing more pretentious.I see no reason why a responsible parliament will consider such bill to be passed into law,knowing fully well that marijuana is harmful to man's health.This is a sad development from them.

Good concept, wish you guys could study it well, if they don't legalize the trade, people that will smoke will smoke and pple that sells will sell. Bt if it's legalize, they would eradicate the drug syndicates and as well monitor people on how they go about the trade and business. And also 40gram a month is sufficient for those that smokes. Good for dere country and hemp's smokers
