Uruguay Could Be First Nation to Legalize Marijuana [POLL]
Uruguay could be the first country to legalize marijuana. The Huffington Post reports that Uruguay’s president has made it clear that his plan for legalizing marijuana in the South American nation does not mean he favors legalizing any other illicit drugs.
Uruguay’s President, Jose Mujica, says his plan is for the government to sell the marijuana at a cheap and reasonable price in hopes of taking profits from the drug dealers.
Mujica says that while drug addiction is a medical problem, drug trafficking is an “un-winnable” police problem.
Uruguay would be the world’s first nation to sell marijuana directly.
