Uruguay considers legalising marijuana

Legislation proposed by Uruguay’s president could lead to marijuana being regulated and sold legally.

Uruguay could become the first Latin American country to legalise and regulate the sale of marijuana.

Politicians are considering a law President José Mujica Cordano has proposed, which – it is hoped – would take away business from drug traffickers and organised crime.
