5 grams are available for 6,44 dollars in authorized chemist’s
Four years after Uruguay’s Jose Mujica government decided that the State would owned marijuana market, weed has arrived to pharmacies definitively to be sold. Thus, you can obtain 5 grams for 6,44 dollars, depending on the value of the American money, if you are over 18 years old, Uruguayan and registered in the Institute of Regulation and Control of Cannabis (IRCCA).
Pharmacies join the 63 cannabis clubs and 7.000 authorized growers to complete the green triangle of Uruguay. It is the final step to make the cannabis industry start walking with the aim of fighting drug trafficking and investing money earned with taxes in other issues.
But this is just the beginning. Selling is still limited inside Uruguay, but they hope new shops start opening and new consumers sign up to the registration once they experience the security that legal way offer to them instead of being exposed to the dangers of black market. Besides, taxes will help to make raise a lot of money and make more inversions, like has happened in Colorado.
In this way, Uruguay is prepared to the starting signal for a way promoted by the government itself, who controls the whole production process to guarantee a good final product.
