In the News (from The Sun Daily): “The lower house of Uruguay’s National Assembly approved the controlled sale of marijuana, news reports said Thursday, in a move to aid the country’s fight against illegal drugs.
“The Chamber of Deputies voted by 50 to 46 late Wednesday after a 13-hour session to allow individuals over 18 to buy up to 40 grams of marijuana per month from chemists’ shops, or to grow up to six cannabis plants, if they register on a database of users.
“Marijuana clubs would be allowed 15 to 45 members, and up to 99 cannabis plants.
“The initiative by the left-leaning government of President Jose Mujica now goes to the Senate, where his Frente Amplio (Broad Front) coalition has a narrow majority.
“If it passes, it would give the state ‘control and regulation of the activities of import, export, planting, cultivation, harvesting, production, acquisition in any capacity, storage, marketing, and distribution of cannabis and its derivatives.’
“Possession of cannabis for personal consumption is already tolerated in Uruguay.”
My Comment: As I have repeatedly pointed out in this blog, everything is heading towards the complete legalization of drugs in order to calm the population and reduce it by peaceful means. All this also leads to the recognition of the evil of our egoistic existence and the realization of the need to correct human nature as the only way for survival.
