In Uruguay, the Only Country with Legal Cannabis, Price is Less than $1 a Gram

Category: Odd | Posted on Mon, November, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

With Canada currently examining ways to legally regulate the distribution of recreational cannabis, we thought it was a good idea to take an updated look at the only country in the world that has legalized the sale of cannabis; Uruguay (other countries may turn a blind eye to cannabis sales, but Uruguay is the only one where it has been statutorily legalized).

In Uruguay, it’s entirely legal for those 18 and older to cultivate up to 6 cannabis plants at any given time, with an allowed annual harvest of roughly 500 grams. Adults can also join cannabis clubs, where cannabis can be shared and consumed, and can purchase cannabis from designated cannabis pharmacies. Although the United Nations has warned Uruguay about moving forward with this new law, they’ve done so anyway.

 

Within the country, cannabis is being sold entirely tax-free to help undercut the black market. This brings the average price per gram down to just 22 Uruguayan pesos, or roughly $1. Although this results in less revenue earned by the country, it prevents situations where the black market simply lowers their prices to compete with the typically higher price of legal cannabis.

Seed To Sale: Oregon Cannabis Business Seminar

Beginning in 2016, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission will be requiring cannabis cultivators, processors, distributors and dispensary owners to apply for licenses, and the Oregon Health Authority will have a similar process. The City of Portland has also created a separate license for cannabis businesses, and other districts may do the same. With multiple licenses to obtain, and a myriad of regulatory hoops to jump through, navigating this newly legal space is going to be a challenge for anyone seeking to fun a cannabis business. If you are planning to apply for either a medical or recreational license in the industry, you will almost certainly need some guidance, and it often takes a team of advisors to stay up to date on the seemingly ever-changing regulations. This Saturday, December 5th, Gleam Law will be hosting Seed to Sale, an Oregon Cannabis Business Seminar on starting, operating, and protecting a licensed cannabis business. Held at Hotel Monaco in downtown Portland, this event will take place from 1-5pm. There will be time for networking afterwards, with a hosted bar and light food available, as well as discounted hotel rooms for seminar attendees.

As many entrepreneurs are making moves to enter into the legal cannabis market, I believe it’s becoming apparent that just producing exceptional cannabis will not be enough to succeed in this increasingly competitive industry; there are over 300 medical dispensaries in Oregon, and enough producers and processors to keep them stocked. An equally exceptional business plan, marketing plan, and legal team will be necessary to stay afloat in this emerging market. The OLCC has released a Business Readiness Guidebook for Oregon Recreational Marijuana Operations online, but unless you’re an expert in employment law, land use and zoning regulations, and operating a business, you’ll need some assistance wading through the 30 pages of information and links.

Canada Health Minister Is Exploring Regulatory Models for Nationwide Pot Reform

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

Canada heath officials are not wasting any time getting into the pertinent details for how the country might establish a taxed and regulated cannabis market.

Earlier last week, just as the United States was preparing to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, the northern nation’s Minister of Health, Jane Philpott, told CBC News that the Canadian government was already wrist deep in an exploratory expedition to find the appropriate regulatory model for bringing prohibition to end across the land.

However, convinced "the world is going to be looking to Canada to make sure we do the job well,” the nation’s leading heath officer admits to having some troubles pinpointing a model that addresses every concern. She says a task force of scientists and medical professionals was currently being assembled to assist her in hashing out the issue.
