Marijuana Laws Will Become Available In Uruguay Until 2015
We have talked about Uruguay legalizing cannabis in the past and although this country has already stated that they will make this herb legal, marijuana will not be legally sold in this country, until 2015. It was last December, when authorities in Uruguay, announced the new cannabis laws, but now they are saying that they have not been able to settle on some of these laws, which is why they will delay legal marijuana sales until next year.
Jose Mujica, who is Uruguay's President and is 79 years old at the moment, told the press, "direct marijuana sales to consumers, will go to next year. There are practical difficulties. If we want to do this sloppily, it's not hard to do that. That's what the United States is doing. But if we want to do this right, we are going to have to do it slowly. We are not just going to say, 'hands off' and let the market take care of it, because if the market is in charge, it is going to seek to sell the greatest possible amount."
At Zip 420, we believe that President Mujica is doing the right thing and that every country, needs to come up with a plan that will actually help them to make marijuana useful to its population, once legal. At the moment, the government of Uruguay has decided that the marijuana that will be sold, will not have more than 15% of THC content, it will not be sold to be people under 18 years of age, it will only be sold to Uruguay citizens and they must be registered with the government.
Although these may seem like some tough laws and requisites to some, it will certainly help the government of Uruguay to have better control over the people involved with this herb and we think this is a good thing. These types of laws, will change our world and it is time to apply them everywhere.
Legalizing marijuana, is the right thing to do and Uruguay is on the right path!
