5 Countries Where Marijuana is Cheapest and Most Expensive

If you are in the international market for marijuana, your legal options are limited. Though the cultivation of pot is widespread across the world, its legal status has only just begun to shift, with some countries choosing to decriminalize the substance and others loosening up enforcement regulations for users and growers.

The plant can grow just about anywhere, making it generally accessible to the global population, and, subsequently, one of the most commonly used illicit substances everywhere from the Americas to Europe. According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, there are more than 177 million cannabis users globally.

Nearly Two Years Later, Here's How Legal Weed Is Working Out for Uruguay

In December 2013, Uruguay became the first country in the world to legalize the sale of recreational marijuana, passing laws promoted by then-President José Mujica designed to set up the world's first nationally controlled marijuana industry.

Under the new laws, Uruguayans earned the right to grow small amounts of marijuana for their own use. On a larger scale, the federal government would allow private licensed growers to produce weed that would then be sold in pharmacies to registered customers at a fixed-rate price said to be as low as a dollar per gram.

Speaking before an audience in Buenos Aires last month, Milton Romani, the secretary general of Uruguay's National Drugs Board (JND), stated that unfounded concerns President Tabare Vazquez would veto legislation legalizing cannabis were simply not true, and that the model for cultivating and dispensing marijuana for recreational use should come into force if not by Christmas 2015, then soon after, reported Cronica.

Former WA miner IGS makes strides in bid to enter medicinal marijuana industry

A WA-based metal explorer says it has made a significant step towards breaking into the big-money world of medicinal marijuana production.

Former gold miner International Goldfields Limited recently moved to acquire 85 per cent of cannabis biosciences specialist Winter Garden Biosciences, which has been given approvals and licenses by the Uruguayan government to start planting its first crop.

IGS director David Tasker said Winter Garden now had the ability to import any varieties of hemp or cannabis, without having restrictions on how much it can grow.

The company will eventually manufacture synthetics, patches and tablets for both medicinal and recreational use.
