Up in Smoke

Free Maria

There's been a great deal of speculation and excitement (undeserved) regarding the possibility of Uruguay 'legalizing' Marijuana. As is usually the case, most people had what was even being proposed bass-ackwards. Some claiming the demon weed would be legal, others being dimly aware of the gov's proposed cockimamy scheme to alot 40 joints a month to every registered pot head. I was, to put it mildly, skeptical of this plan, complete with the fool proof idea to have roaches turned in as 'proof'.

No need to worry, it was DOA and never made it out of Parliment.
Our president or his cronys appear to view smoke as a potential revenue stream (it could be), a measure to curb the use of 'free base' cocaine (it won't) and worse, something they can manage (I doubt seriously they could).
The best that can be gleaned is that this uniformed and clumsy attempt to deal with a fact many people in this world already know; Marijuana is not dangerous and needs to be decriminalized immediately, is that it could be a step, albeit a baby step, toward a more enlightened era.
Vamos arriba.

Meanwhile people do what they do and for the most part are left alone here.

Thanks for keeping up.
