A number of pharmacies across Uruguay will begin selling recreational marijuana to registered Uruguayans on July 19. There are about 5,000 people that have already signed up for the registry. At first, sixteen pharmacies will be able to sell up to 40-grams of marijuana per month to registered users.
The Uruguayan government requires a security stamp guaranteeing authenticity on all marijuana, according to Business Insider, as well as a warning label regarding the possible risks of marijuana consumption.
It took nearly 4 years since the approval of the legalization bill in December 2013 to get sales implemented.
Individual cultivation is permitted under the Uruguayan law. Marijuana clubs may also be formed.
