Uruguay legalizes the production & distribution of marijuana

URUGUAY, Montevideo : Uruguay, the small South American country headed by the emblematic Jose Mujica, legalized on Tuesday the production and distribution of marijuana. By doing so, it became the first country in the world where the state has total control of the commercialization of a drug. This law reflects Uruguay’s liberal tradition which also saw its Congress approving abortion and same-sex marriage in the past two years.
