Registration Opens for Cannabis Growers’ Clubs in Uruguay
Registration is now officially open in Uruguay for those wanting to open cannabis growers’ clubs, part of the nation’s recent legalization of cannabis.
Licensed clubs will consist of up to 45 members, who will be allowed to grow up to 99 plants a year.
In August, the private cultivation of up to six cannabis plants became legal for anyone 18 and older. Cannabis growers’ clubs will allow individuals to join together for a larger grow-op, allowing them to easily share between growers, and allowing those that aren’t expert cultivators a chance to learn from others.
Uruguay’s government hopes to begin selling cannabis through pharmacies by next year. According to government officials, cannabis will be sold tax-free at roughly $1 a gram, as a means of undercutting the black market.
