Tomorrow: Will Uruguay Be First Country To Legalize Marijuana?

 

As soon as tomorrow afternoon votes are expected in the Uruguayan House of Representatives which will cast the country into the lead to become the first country to official end cannabis prohibition.

The country’s president, José Mujica, and the ruling party in the Uruguayan Senate, Frente Ampli, are also public supporters of replacing cannabis prohibition with a state monopoly on cannabis commerce.

Since President Mujica’s public support for legalization was made public in Uruguay last year, a concerted effort to reform the country’s cannabis laws has been underway featuring national TV ad campaigns: with well produced ads featuring mothers, doctors and lawyers.

For more info about efforts to legalize cannabis in Uruguay, contact the Drug Policy Alliance coordinator for South American, Hannah Hetzer: +59891855163 hhetzer@drugpolicy.org

 

Full respect to the president of Uruguay Jose Mujica. Not only does he see sense about the disastrous effects on both his country and the world from the so-called war on drugs but he is also a damn decent kind of chap who drives around in an old Volkswagen and gives most of his salary away to the poor.

Uruguay president

I would suggest the politicians of our corrupt western societies take note, this is the future.
