Legal Marijuana Will Be Sold In Uruguay Until 2015

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!

  1. Cannabis was "legalized" the second they wrote the first statute which made it "illegal." It's been 100% "legalized" ever since.

    What most people "meant to say" was that prohibition should be REPEALED. Of course, since nobody ever looks up the meaning of words any more, they think that "decriminalization" or "legalize" or "re-legalize" or "tax and regulate" or "regulate like _____" mean "it's free again."

    "EVERYTHING that people have been begging for" hasn't resulted in the FREEING of the plant, or your ability to access, possess, or grow it yourself...and yet, the one word that DOES represent what everyone "believes they have been saying" is the one word they REFUSE to say...while wondering why every effort to regain their freedom fails...

    re·peal [ri-peel] Show IPA
    verb (used with object)

    1. to revoke or withdraw formally or officially: to repeal a grant.
    2. to revoke or annul (a law, tax, duty, etc.) by express legislative enactment; abrogate.


    3. the act of repealing; revocation; abrogation.

    1275–1325; Middle English repelen < Anglo-French repeler, equivalent to re- re- + ( a ) peler to appeal

    A repeal is the removal or reversal of a law.

    There are two basic types of repeal, a repeal with re-enactment (or replacement) of the repealed law, or a repeal without replacement. The motion to rescind, repeal, or annul is used in parliamentary procedure to cancel or countermand an action or order previously adopted by the assembly. Removal of secondary legislation is normally referred to as revocation rather than repeal in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Under the common law of England and Wales, the effect of repealing a statute was "to obliterate it completely from the records of Parliament as though it had never been passed."[1] This, however, is now subject to savings provisions within the Interpretation Act 1978.

    So now that you've FINALLY actually read the definition of the word that DOES represent what you "believe you were saying" since the 60's...NOW does it make a tiny bit more sense why ALL EFFORTS HAVE FAILED to restore our freedoms so far?

    It's time we REPEALED prohibition. For everyone. Everywhere.

    "More of the same" isn't working. It never did. It never will.

    IT CAN'T...because it was never DESIGNED to.

    Not "decriminalization." Not "legalization." Not "tax and regulate." Not "regulate like _______." Not "government controlled." Not "corporate monopoly controlled." Not even "for approved and specifically licensed medicinal use only."

    ALL of those are just different forms of "specifically delineated" PROHIBITION.

    If you want it over, you have to REPEAL it.

    Unless you really WANT "more of the same?"
