This will certainly excite some people


Uruguay's House of Representative has passed a bill to legalise marijuana.

If it goes on to be approved by the Senate, Uruguay will become the first country to regulate the production, distribution and sale of marijuana.

The law is backed by the government of President Jose Mujica, which says it will remove profits from drug dealers and divert users from harder drugs.

Under the bill, only the government would be allowed to sell marijuana.

The state would assume "the control and regulation of the importation, exportation, plantation, cultivation, the harvest, the production, the acquisition, the storage, the commercialisation and the distribution of cannabis and its by-products".

Buyers would have to be registered on a database and be over the age of 18. They would be able to buy up to 40g (1.4oz) per month in specially licensed pharmacies or grow up to six plants at home.

The bill was approved by 50 of the 96 MPs in the lower house following a fierce 13-hour debate.


As for Uruguay being the first country ... for some reason I thought it was legal in the Netherlands ... isn't it also legal in Canada?

In the Netherlands, it's more like you don't get criminalized for having small amounts of marijuana. It's a criminal offense to have marijuana in the Netherlands, but they don't actively pursue you unless you have a huge amount of it. Also, in Canada, like in the Netherlands, it's not really enforced, but it is illegal.

Foreigners would be excluded from the measure.



Aw man, the thought of a bunch of foreigners going on vacation there just to smoke hella weed was hilarious to me. It would be like the new Amsterdam.

On a side note, my dad went to Amsterdam with his friend on "business" when I was a kid. I thought it was so cool that adults could go on business trips with their friends. Oh my god.

I live in BC and I can confirm this. I can smell pot throughout my neighborhood half of the time.
