Government To Sell Pot For $1 A Gram (In Uruguay) - Why?

Оценок: 2085 | Просмотров: 51916
"Uruguay's drug tsar says the country plans to sell legal marijuana for $1 a gram to combat drug-trafficking, according to a local newspaper. The plan to create a government-run legal marijuana industry has passed the lower house of Congress, and Uruguay's president, José Mujica, expects to push it through the Senate soon as part of his effort to explore alternatives in the war on drugs. The measure would make Uruguay the first country in the world to license and enforce rules for the production, distribution and sale of marijuana for adult consumers."* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down. *Read more here from AP / The Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/oct/22/uruguay-legal-marijuana-drug-traffickers Download audio and video of the full two hour show on-demand + the members-only post game show by becoming a member at http://www.tytnetwork.com/member-options/.

An ounce? For $1/g you might as well take a whole pound and stock up for summer.

Seems to me that it is any nations rights to do as they as a people see fit. No nation should be bullied by another. If they want pot who cares? Heck marijuana does less harm to the lungs than tobacco does...as far as I know. More people die I imagine from alcohol anyway. The whole crap over pot seems insane to me.

Actually, to rebuke your ignorant comment, there have been studies shown to even INCREASE neurogenisis in the adult hippocampus. Neurogenisis is the creation of cells, the creation of cells leads to greater neuron connections, neuron connections are the basis for our brains basic workings-hence, marijuana may, in fact, be a supplement to your brain. Here, I even looked up a scholarly article for ya buddy. Search "marijuana increase neurogenisis", under scholarly journals to be fully reputable.

Im so stupid bro. I mean, I cant do shit and I know absolutely nothing. Ive never won any learning awards, and Ive never been told by the people around me how intelligent I am. I cant even operate my tv remote properly anymore. Worst part is, I didnt even smoke weed. I walked into a room where a person had smoked a bowl of weed earlier in the day. Thats all it takes.

guyz just to clarify we aren't legalizing marihuana, it's still illegal to make your own weed for example. And the amount of weed you smoke goes into a record.

Nope. The last blanco government AFAIK was pretty much the same as this one from a different perspective. Ups and downs with corruption going on in the background. And the colorados were a fucking disaster. Right now, politically speaking, we're fucked from every side.

I feel your pain. But the reality of the situation is that making a cash crop illegal supports a multi million dollar black market, which creates much worse problems than the ones that stem from cannabis abuse. The 'war on drugs' is a failure, regardless of ones personal opinion on the issue.

Potheads claim to be peaceful, but every time I see a video related to it online, it's full of angry pot addicts trying to defend their habit, never seen any other group show so much anger. God help us if we decide to legalize that garbage in America.

Bienvenidos sean! traigan semillas de especies raras que no se consiguen. ;) Igual vivir aquí no es fácil, un joven promedio tiene que estudiar y trabajar por 400 dolares por mes, cuando solo el alquiler de una vivienda cuesta eso. Somos un país únicamente ganadero donde exportamos carne vacuna desde siempre y el kilo de Asado nos cuesta unos 7 dólares, la leche 1,25 el litro y un litro de gas oil 2 , y así muchos etcéteras. Igual hay cosas lindas (start studying spanish he) :)

Studies have shown that heavy use of Marijuana can kill brain cells. HEAVY USE The same is true with Alcohol, I want to see a light casual use study with Marijuana. Hell, light use of Alcohol can be good for you.

Neither is alchohol. Or fast food. Or gambling. Or video games. Almost nothing is completely harmless, but that doesnt mean it should be illegal. People should be free to make their own judgements in their own lives.

God I hate my country, the US is filled with gready rich poleticians and lobbyists who govern out country in the way that benefits them the most. Saying marijuana is bad is a lie and the fact the government labaled marijana a schedual one drug is just rediculous. Colorado is setting the path for the rest of the country but the rest of the states are just to slow to come to the conclusion that marijuana isnt bad. The federal government should just make weed legal and end this. Come on obama!

Good thing cannabis is actually a neuroprotectant and not neurotoxic as you have been mislead. Maybe you could benefit from a neuroprotective antioxidant like cannabis, it certainly won't hurt your punctuation or capitalization as much as sheer ignorance.

It illegal because back when it was legal most people that smoke was black and Mexicans. Which is known fact. Pot became illegal do criminalize people of darker skin than whites. You are ignoring scientific data that shows that their medical befits to smoking pot.

you've got nothing to say because you've got nothing to defend your position with. you know full well that the nonsense you're spreading is entirely counter productive in the creation of a civilised society. you're a cave man on the wrong side of history trying desperately to remain relevant by lashing out at every opportunity against those who you've been told are your enemy (by those who would control you, no less). perhaps pathetic was too kind a description.

There's a saying in my country "If marijuana is a gateway drug, alchohol is a gateway to passing medicinal alcohol passed through bread", which exposes the same stupidity people who want to keep marijuana forbidden have.

Marijuana will make white woman lose all control and the negros will rape them. The negro's will slip it in our young white womens drinks in order to rape our wives and daughters...... Seriously! Dont believe me? Do your research, thats how they got the public to agree to making it illegal. The government made commercials and did demonstrations at public schools explaining this fact. ( wouldnt it be fucking awesome to live in a world where you could say " ITS A FACT BECAUSE I SAY ITS A FACT!"

That is.. a really good idea actually. Also if the weed was grown on big farms it would greatly reduce the price, maybe not to 1 buck but to a lot less than it is now.

previous ranting? you're gonna have to be specific because i haven't been ranting. if you're referring to the length of my last comment then you've got a problem because the length of an argument says nothing about the tone in which it's communicated, which as anyone who actually knows how to use the english language properly understands is how we know a rant when it happens, the tone, not the length. also, you using the term reasonable is nothing short of comical :D

This new law covers three different ways to get marijuana. 1) Grow it yourself (need to register with the governament) and can grow up to 6 plants at the same time. 2) Be part of a ´´Collective Group) (up to 100 members) and plant and share the weed with each other. 3) Register yourself as a weed user and buy it in any Drug Store.

xtensitymusic (4 года назад)
I don't care what anybody says. Yeah this may be a 'good idea' but $1/g is ridiculous and entirely not profitably assuming they grew it themselves on their own land. That land could be used for something thousands of times more profitable. What Uruguay really means: We are going to sell you all of the pot we have confiscated from traffickers and are going to further sell you the weed we manage to confiscate leaving the border!

and there we have the standard right winger projection. the circle is complete.
Rabsputin (4 года назад)
there's nothing politically correct about what i asked. you live a life of fear. you're terrified of gay people, and by the looks of it you're also terrified of anyone who isn't a self centred right winger and doesn't want to kill anything which doesn't look and act like ted nugent, and so to counteract this you have to put on an act of bravado and call homosexual people (and anyone who isn't homosexual but allies with them) 'faggots'. it's really pathetic if you think about it.
Rabsputin (4 года назад)
not meaningless. the fact that you can't find the meaning in the question is evidence only of your own shortcomings and has no reflection on the question itself.
Rabsputin (4 года назад)
was it such a scary question that you had to answer it with another question instead of giving an actual answer? also, if you don't have the cerebral horse power to read between the lines it's no wonder you're terrified of 'the other'.

Anomalous AP (4 года назад)
Thank you for the personal analysis. I'm still waiting for your links talking about addiction effects on Marijuana and not about potential side-effects. Keep me posted please. Cheerio.
Anomalous AP (4 года назад)
By the way, funny how your studies do not talk about addiction, but rather "side-effects". Seems like someone needs to learn research 101.
Anomalous AP (4 года назад)
I'm not being narcissist, I'm just showing you reality: Do you remember when you literally suggested pot smokers tend to have "less money" than non-pot smokers?, Or did you forget about it? Funny how I still remember reading that *after* smoking pot, and you, the guy who doesn't, can't even remember what you wrote. Funny how you can only give me a couple of links from 1994 and from a well-known biased study that has been dismissed many times in recent years. Show me something credible.
Anomalous AP (4 года назад)
I'm sorry to comment again. I want to see that empirical evidence about the addictive effects of pot, please show me a link to actual studies. Kind regards from a successful IT analyst who likes to smoke pot form time to time, which probably is more educated and makes more money than you ever will.
Anomalous AP (4 года назад)
You implied exactly what I suggested very strongly. You do not have to mention things in a literate sense in order for me to see what you're hinting. Yes, I do believe your opinion is entirely flawed and ridiculous, and yes, I do believe you shouldn't be talking about the effects of pot if you've never experienced it. It is that simple. BTW, the reason I deleted my posts is because I find it very pathetic to reply to people like you, who haven't ever done any research anything about the subject.

Doesn't really matter does it? In keeping with the conservative talking points (which I admit, is an assumption concerning you) the terms tend to get blurred and mixed together on the evening news. One of the key similarities most libertarians (aka. liberal conservatives) and "liberals" share is keep government policies out of individuals households. Surely you can agree with this?

You clearly did not even bother to open a book about prohibition nor make some quick research about it in the perspective of it why it doesn't work, their is even research done about it and guess what, even movies, i am guessing u do not watch documentaries, and to answer ur first question, if they made heroin or any deadly poison legal to consume with a big warning, would u consume it?....yeah, u are clearly not well educated, and the way u mention the government make u sound like a fascist

People who say weed is a gateway drug is a retard. Gateway to what? The fridge?
Sean Hayes (4 года назад)
Agreed--everyone should know exactly what they're taking before they do. The problem with marijuana is a lot of misinformation is put out; most people don't know it's benefits, but know the potential negatives (which are usually greatly overstated). I'd like to consider fatalities (or potential fatalities) ARE a good measure of a drug's harmlessness, as death is a high degree of "harm." To the "because its legal" point--a human could not consume enough marijuana to EVER become fatal.
