Dutch Passion enjoy visiting Expo Cannabis in Uruguay
Dutch Passion enjoyed a fun week at Expo Cannabis in Uruguay recently. Uruguay was the first country in the world to legalise cannabis back in 2013 and has a thriving cannabis scene. Lots of people enjoy growing their own recreational/medical cannabis from autoflower seeds or feminised seeds Cannabis is freely available throughout Uruguay, the cannabis industry produces plenty of jobs with pensions and good working conditions. Cannabis is available through pharmacies for medical users. The various cannabis industries and jobs raise much needed taxes for the Government, the whole model works very well. Contrast that with so many western Governments who spend $Billions on policing/judicial costs just to maintain the lost fight of prohibition. One of the reasons to legalize cannabis in Uruguay was to undermine black market gangs and reduce drug-related violence. Uruguay’s 'marijuana experiment’ succeeded in reducing Uruguayan violent crime to some of the lowest in South America. Other countries, such as Mexico, are hoping to follow Uruguays example and remove cannabis from the hands of black marketeers and violent drug gangs.
