On Dec. 10, 2013, Uruguay led the way in marijuana reform as the first country in the world to legalize the cannabis trade.

Registered Uruguayan consumers will be able to access three types of marijuana in drug stores with high, medium and low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol and correspondent levels of cannabidiol, said Milton Romani, president of the country's national drug office, on Saturday.

“There are three options, depending on the effect of each one ... (we are) trying to recommend the lowest level for beginners,” Romani told Reuters at the 2015 Expocannabis taking place in the country’s capital Montevideo.

Uruguay officials discover pot-growing clubs may have created 'gray market' for marijuana

Authorities in Uruguay say the country's legal pot-growing clubs may be selling marijuana and cannabis products without approval, creating a kind of "gray market."

The pot-growing clubs are allowed to have 45 members who can collectively cultivate up to 99 plants for personal use, but they cannot sell the marijuana.

Uruguay became the first nation to approve marijuana legalization and regulation in 2013.

The law also allows Uruguayan adults to buy up to 40 grams of marijuana from pharmacies once a month. But there have been delays in implementing the pioneering plan.
