DRUGS Uruguay becomes the first country in the world to fully legalize Cannabis. Who's next?

Its taken over four years to bring into legislation but as of July this year, you can buy Cannabis and smoke it anywhere.

Published 27 JUL 2017 14:23PM





Cannabis is the most widely used illicit drug on Earth and is estimated to have a market value of between 40 to 120 Billion Euros. As developing research suggests the plant actually offers more health benefits than negative effects, it would appear a logical option would be to make it readily available instead of punishing consumers.



Uruguay have done just that. The South American country, boasting a population of over 3.4 Million, have fully legalized Cannabis after a 4 year long legal process. You can purchase the drug from specific pharmacies in quantities of up to 40 grams per person.

It comes from years of protetsing and a huge march that took place in 2013 to legalize the drug.



The only condition is you have to register with government and you MUST be a citizen with the correct documentation to prove this, so don't go booking your flights just yet. You can smoke the plant anywhere as long as you're not in a closed public space or near a health establishment.

With Medicinal Cannabis already legal in over 20 American states and decriminalized in over 20 countries including Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Jamaica and Estonia, you have to wonder how long it will be before it becomes fully legalized in more countries around the globe.
