Delay in Legal Marijuana Sales in Uruguay
Uruguayan President Jose Mujica has said the start of legal cannabis sales will be delayed until next year due to "practical difficulties".
Sales in state-owned pharmacies were due to begin as early as November.
Under the new law the following will be the case:
Licensed pharmacies will sell the drug for less than $1 (£0.65) a gramme, with consumers allowed 40g (1.4oz) 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.
And, if memory serves, sales to foreigners would be prohibited (meaning no pot tourism for you!).
It will be interesting to see what this law does, once fully implemented, to the black market for the substance in Uruguay.
