Uruguay pharmacies start selling recreational marijuana — BBCI

Recreational weed sales begin tomorrow at Uruguay's pharmacies

Recreational weed sales begin tomorrow at Uruguay's pharmacies

This week Uruguay will officially begin legal sales of marijuana for those 18 and older, over three and a half years after the law legalizing the plant was initially approved by lawmakers.

Uruguay's parliament gave final approval to the measure in December 2013, making Uruguay the first country in the world to fully legalize cannabis for retail distribution. It also permits individual cultivation of marijuana and the creation of cannabis clubs. Regulation will be overseen by the government's Institute for the Regulation and Control of Cannabis (IRCCA). Uruguay's model is different than legal marijuana sales at the state level in America.

"Uruguay's model will look quite different from the eight US states that have legalized marijuana", Hetzer continued. "There is no one-size-fits-all marijuana legalization system".

The price for five grams has been set at 187 Uruguayan pesos ($6.50; £5.00).

Users can buy up to 40 grams a month.

The marijuana sold at the pharmacies comes from state-supervised fields. Uruguay now serves as a model for the rest of the world, and people everywhere will obviously be keeping a close eye on the nation to see how things go moving forward.
