Uruguay, the first country that legalized recreational marijuana in the world, is finally ready to launch a new cannabis program. According to the new legal measures, hundreds of pharmacies will start selling weed in July 2017.
While more and more American states legalize cannabis use, people in the neighboring countries are becoming increasingly enthusiastic about weed policies in their regions. However, in most Latin American countries, using, cultivating, and trafficking marijuana remains illegal.
The first legal crop of marijuana is now harvested by two companies licensed to cultivate national cannabis in Uruguay. The country is going to sell this cannabis harvest for about $1 per gram through licensed pharmacies in South America.
