    Lawmakers In Uruguay Vote To Legalize Pot

    Uruguay will become the world's first country to approve the growing, selling and use of marijuana, after the country's Senate voted for the change, which the president has promised to sign into law.
    Reuters describes the move as "a pioneering social experiment that will be closely watched by other nations debating drug liberalization."
    Sen. Constanza Moreira, who voted with the majority, called the vote on Tuesday "an historic day."
    "Many countries of Latin America, and many governments, will take this law as an example," she said.

    I am curious what the UNs International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) is going to do. I don't think they have teeth. However, Uruguay is violating the UN.

    Good for Uruguay.

    I applaud their efforts.
    I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I'm a human being, first and foremost, and as such I'm for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.
