There was a drought of news on the drug policy reform in the aftermath of the April 14-15 Summit of the Americas, and it looked like the issue had been stuck in a closet or swept under the carpet, but now once again, some momentous news are coming from Latin America! Uruguay, the Switzerland of Latin America, may become the first country in the world to establish a regulated marketplace for marijuana to combat the spread of coca paste that is afflicting the country!
Uruguayan President José Mujica and his government intend to submit a proposal for the controlled sale of marijuana through a users’ registry in order to separate the hard drugs and soft drugs marketplace. The proposal is still in its very early stages and needs to be approved by the parliament, but it already represents a giant step in the right direction.
To find out more, please check: “Uruguay may become the first country in the world to fully legalize and control marijuana”. Please share this link and/or this message. Some action might be warranted for a show of support for the Uruguayan initiative. I will keep you posted.
More news are also expected shortly from Guatemala. Invite your friends to sign the Perez Molina petition. Time is approaching for the second phase of this movement.
