Legal Cannabis in Uruguay to be $2.5 Per Gram

Cannabis is on the verge of being legalized in Uruguay, with the nation’s House of Representatives recently passing a president-backed legalization measure which has enough support in the Senate to be approved. Once tcannabishe law takes effect, cannabis possession and private home cultivation will be legalized for adults 18 and older, as will government-authorized sales through cannabis clubs and designated pharmacies.

Under the proposed regulation system, cannabis will be sold at only $2.5 per gram, according to Univision.

According to advocates of the proposed law, having the price set at a reasonable rate is important, so to sway people away from the black-market which tends to fund criminal enterprises.

As the nation moves forward with this plan to legalize and regulate cannabis, the whole world is watching closely. In September, Uruguay’s president will give a speech to the United Nations, defending this new policy.

    $2.5 a gram !! Wow, now that’s how it should be…here in NZ ,we still pay $20 for around, 0.7-9 of a gram. This country desperately needs to ‘legalize it’, the Gangs control the majority of street drugs here..

    CBD, cannabidiol, is in both marijuana and hemp (also cannabis). And the benefits of “medical marijuana” are found in both concentrated hemp and in marijuana

    It is time to take marijuana away from the cartels and regulate this substance!

    Youth use of marijuana goes down when prohibition is lifted and taxes can help this economy.

    How to invest in this economy or get the benefits of cannabis no matter where you live?

    Follow this:

    Hemp is legal to possess in ALL 50 states. CBD is present in hemp oil at 40mg a gallon but can be very concentrated in extracts now available.

    Legal states for all cannabis (legal thc containing cannabis) are noticing that half of all sales are for edibles and extracts!

    The premier company in the legal state of Colorado is Dixie Botanicals and DIxie Elixers, two companies owned by MJNA.

    MJNA is the alpha source of CBD from legal hemp through their other company RSHO (Phytosphere)!

    MJNA, a stock traded on the stock market is about to rocket up!

    As well for those that want CBD they can order it from ANY state legally from MJNA (phytosphere) or from Dixie Botanicals!

    Invest in the “Green Rush”! MJNA is the ALPHA company to invest in!
    Investing in MJNA is investing in America!
    Help the sick and take cannabis away from the overseas cartels by investing in MJNA!

    The 2.5 is in American Dollars. You can tell by the $ Sign. Other Currency use other symbols.

      There’s several other currencies that use the $ symbol, such as the Singapore dollar, but I agree with Patrick that this is most likely USD.

    All I can say is well done Uruguay, one of the most progressive and forward thinking states around and notice how they set a sensible price so that they can remove the product from the black market. Criminals in Uruguay will notice a massive whole in their profits this year. Unfortunately in the UK David Cameron is in league with the criminals and will anything he can to protect their profits.
