On November 15, the government of Uruguay submitted to its parliament a proposal for the legalization of the sale of marijuana under state control (possession and use of marijuana is already legal in Uruguay). The project would also legalize the cultivation for personal use of up to 6 plants of cannabis. If adopted, Uruguay would become the first country in the world to establish a controlled marketplace for marijuana.

The project has already been approved by the Officialista Party, who holds a majority in the lower chamber, and is not submitted for comments to the opposition party. It is noteworthy that the major opposition parties have themselves asked for legalization of cultivation for personal use in the past.

President Mujica has scheduled a month-long national debate on his proposal.  We cannot afford to drop the ball on Uruguay.

When you sign the letter underneath, it will be sent with your signature to President José Mujica and the two major opposition parties. Please share this blog  post on Facebook, on Twitter and other social medias or by email.

Remember: This is just a proposal for the time being, and it needs to go thru parliamentary approval. For those you who think that it doesn’t go far enough, that it gives too much control to the government, just think about the uphill battle President José Mujica and his government are facing, and the expected US government’s stonewalling. There is absolutely no guarantee that this proposal will go thru, which is why we need to show our support.

For more impact, you can also tweet to the following:

  1. The truth about the effects of marijuana should be told and the unjust laws need to be changed.

  2. Jeff Brown says:

    Marijuana is the most useful plant on the planet. Food, clothing, shelter, energy, medicine, insight, recreation. Popular Mechanics in 1938 called it a Billion dollar crop because of all its commercial uses. I joined a Jamaican Rasta church when I was 20. I am now 57. Rastas believe marijuana is the biblical tree of life for the healing of the nations. google Marijuana and the Bible by Jeff Brown

      Mister Brown, I wholeheartedly agree with your assertion that marijuana is the most useful plant on earth. I’ve maintained 4 some time now that it is the only plant on earth that possesses the ability 2 save it!

    My understanding is that anyone interested will have to register with the government as a “drug user” and then buy their drugs from the government. I can see no good in this at all. Why is this a good thing?
    The article above states that possession and use are already legal with no government registration. What am I missing ?

      Because it will be the breaking point of the Single Convention Treaty,,authored by Harry Anslinger and assc,,,,the people that started the insane prohibition of marijuana and who should be listed under the same category as Hitler and other famous war criminals,foe he is responsible for more American citizens being imprisoned than any other individual,,and all for the money and based on lies and propaganda.

      • claygooding says:

        PS: If there were any way to count the number of people killed in this insane drug war over marijuana,,Anslinger may have killed more people than the NAZI’ holocaust.

    Legalize this shit, stop fuckin drug war, jailing and persecuting people, supporting organised crime, making so much harm!

  9. BOUDON says:

    CANNABIS IS MOST BETTER RESPONSE TO MANY PROBLEMS IN THIS WORLD THAN ANY OTHER “LEGAL” DRUGS. THE PROBLEM IS THAT “LEGAL” DRUGS ARE A LOT WORSE FOR HUMAN HEALTH BUT A LOT MORE “POLITICALY ACCEPTED” BY MOST OF THE GOVERNMENTS IN THIS ROTTEN WORLD.
    CANNABIS IS NOT ONLY A PROBLEM OF DRUG POLICY. IT CAN ALSO RESOLVE MANY OTHER PROBLEMS LIKE MAKING GOOD ITEMS FOR GOOD HEAT ISOLATION FOR BUILDING HOUSES, BETTER AND CHEAPER STUFFS FOR MAKING ROPES AND CLOTH. WELL, WAR ON DRUGS HAS BEEN SO BAD THAT CANNABIS HAS BEEN CONSIDERED AS A DEVIL LIKE STUFF THAT SO MANY STUPID PEOPLE THOUGHT IT WAS SO… HUMAN BILIEF IS NOW TO RECONSIDER CANNABIS IS A REAL GOOD PLANT !!
    BUT THERE ARE SO MANY STUPID ECONOMONIC INTERESTS NOWADAYS THAT IT IS SO HARD TO MAKE PEOPLE OPINION TO CHANGE…
    NOW, I AM SO SAD TO REALIZE THAT, IN SPITE OF OUR SO BAD PLANET FUTURE PLANNING, HUMMAN FUTURE IS PLANNED TO AN EXTINCTION OF HUMMAN SPECIES. OUR PLANET WILL SURVIVE WITHOUT HUMAN SPECIES, JUST AS IT DID WITH EXTINCTION OF MANY OTHER SPECIES IN THE PAST. HUMAN SPECIES IS NOT AS IMPORTANT AS ANY OTHERS… OUR PLANET WILL MAKE ITS WAY WITHOUT HUMANS, AS IT MADE ITS WAY WITHOUT DINOSAURS OR OTHERS SPECIES IN THE PAST. JUST REMEMBER PLANET HEARTH DIDN’T CARE LIVING WITH OR WITHOUT 90 PERCENT OF LIVING SPECIES EXTINCTIONS SEVERAL TIMES IN THE PAST BILLIONS YEARS, AND REMEMBER ESPECIALLY THAT HUMAN SPECIES IS ONLY 3 MILLION YEARS OLD… THE WORSE THING TO THINK IS THAT “HUMAN AGE” IS SO RECENT AND ALSO THE WORST AGE FOR THE PLANET… MANY SCIENTIFITCS THEREFOR AGREE TO SAY THAT HUMAN RACE IS THE WORST VIRUS …
