Uruguay reveals ganja sale rules

Published:Saturday | May 3, 2014 | 10:06 AM

The Uruguayan authorities have revealed how marijuana will be produced and sold legally in the country.



Licensed pharmacies will sell the drug for less than US1 a gram, with consumers allowed 40 grams a month.



The bill specifies that each household may grow up to six cannabis plants, and that marijuana may be consumed in the same places as tobacco.



Last year, Uruguay became the first country in the world to make it legal to grow, sell and consume marijuana.



The bill proposed by President Jose Mujica is expected to come into force early next week.
