Uruguayan President Jose Mujica

The government of the South American nation of Uruguay plans to not only legalize marijuana, but to sell it, according to local news media.

Unnamed lawmakers from Uruguay’s ruling party were quoted as saying that the government would send a bill to Congress on Wednesday that would legalize cannabis sales as a “crime-fighting measure.” Only the government would be allowed to sell marijuana, and only to adults registered as “users,” reports Pablo Fernandez of the Associated Press.
