Uruguay has legalized marijuana, the first country to do so. (It has been legal there to use it, but now it is legal to cultivate it and sell it, also.) True to form, the UN had to jump in and denounce this move (see here), saying it violates international law. This should be an interesting fight: the leftist president of Uruguay (Jose Mujica), who proposed the bill, versus the leftist United Nations, which opposes it. Grab some popcorn.
