Montevideo, Uruguay (CNN) — The passage of a landmark marijuana legalization measure Tuesday means Uruguay is set to become the first country in the world to have a system regulating legal production, sale and consumption of the drug.

It’s practically a done deal. President Jose Mujica has to sign the bill before it becomes a law. But he’s long backed the measure, and there’s little doubt that he remains behind it.

Applause and cheers rang out in Uruguay’s Senate on Tuesday after the high-profile vote at the end of a lengthy debate on the bill.

 

Remember a couple days ago when I said I feel like I’m always writing about a story that makes me hate America more and more every day? Well, there was probably I reason I said that. Because it’s true. And here we go again. Fucking Uruguay legalizing the shit out of Marijuana like it ain’t no thing. Why? Because they fucking get it. What do they get? Life. Look I could sit here all day and talk about why marijuana should be legalized. I’ve written papers on it. I’ve done a shit ton of research on it. Weighed out the pros and cons. Etc, etc. I’m not going to get into all the detail because I know you probably don’t want to spend the next few hours reading me go on and on about it, so I’m going to break it down real quick for you guys. Regulating and taxing marijuana results in two things. The first of which is money. Money is usually considered a good thing for a country to have. The second of which is it puts the drug dealers out of business. Drug dealers are bad. Why does it put them out of business? Because there’s no way they can match the price. Even if they could, why would you want to go to some sketchy drug dealer when you can walk into the store and be greeted with a smile and a bag of weed that you know isn’t laced with whatever the fuck they are lacing shit with these days. Moral of the story? Stop letting South American countries be better than us, America. This shit is getting old.
