    Uruguay became the first country to legalize the growing, sale and smoking of marijuana on Tuesday, a pioneering social experiment that will be closely watched by other nations debating drug liberalization.

    A government-sponsored bill approved by 16-13 votes in the Senate provides for regulation of the cultivation, distribution and consumption of marijuana and is aimed at wresting the business from criminals in the small South American nation.

    Cannabis consumers will be able to buy a maximum of 40 grams (1.4 ounces) each month from licensed pharmacies as long as they are Uruguayan residents over the age of 18 and registered on a government database that will monitor their monthly purchases.

    When the law is implemented in 120 days, Uruguayans will be able to grow six marijuana plants in their homes a year, or as much as 480 grams (about 17 ounces), and form smoking clubs of 15 to 45 members that can grow up to 99 plants per year.

    Registered drug users should be able to start buying marijuana over the counter from licensed pharmacies in April.

    something like 66% of the uruguayans don't want it legalized.

    it could all end with the next election.

    in the meantime, well done uruguay. :toke:

    I wish that government would just lift the prohibition and stop wasting our time and money on this.

    This summer they had a helicopter and 6 big black SUV's loaded with officers driving around the local cornfields ripping plants.

    I can't imagine what an operation like that costs and I will tell you I heard from a friend that they didn't find even 10% of what was planted out around this county.

    5 or so years ago I almost picked up and fucked off to Uruguay. Dirt cheap, awesome beaches and most north americans haven't picked up on it yet.
    Punta del Este is awesome.

    Scares the crap out of me how the regulate in Calif. I don't want the fucking goverment to know shit about me...The clinics here have become so
    clandestine...The wax is over priced and shitty...The weed doesn't burn completely or even stay lit...That's chemicals..I can't grow where I am.
    I don't understand the big deal over weeeeed...You never hear about somebody "stoned" driving over someone or crap like that. Ridiculous.

    I wonder if their stuff is a sativa or a indica. Or is it ganje..I had that once..Looked weird...fucked me up..wasn't buds it was wrapped around a stick..Was not thai stick.

    I want it at the frickin' grocery store already, what's the hold up- right next to Redbox, there should be a Greenbox (for 18+ people).

    Pretty soon we'll all have government ID's or eyeball recognition, so minors won't be able to trick the system.

    Oh puh-leeez..:cool: Like you don't know that it's all Hydro and that they never flush it right.
    Go light up a bowl...Does it stay lit and turn to gray ash or does is just burn and turn black.

    and the oil is made from weed that molded and smells like cat pee so you can't sell it..Make wax.:facepalm:



    but what do I know..I've only been stoned since the 9th grade:toke::weeed:
