Regulations Accompanying Uruguay's Marijuana Legalization Law

This is an English translation of the regulations signed on May 6, 2014 to accompany Uruguay’s marijuana legalization law, passed in December 2013, making Uruguay the first country in the world to legalize the production, distribution and sale of marijuana for adults. In the regulations, specifics of the system - beyond what was captured in the bill (Law 19.172) - are fleshed out, providing details on forms of access, restrictions and regulatory specifics.
