Another country with a brutal anti-drug past is jumping into the medical marijuana market.
Paraguay has announced its intentions to cash in on legalization.
Cannabis growers have been told to get their paperwork ready. The country plans to serve foreign markets as well as research efforts and medical patients in Paraguay.
But there’s one interesting feature of Paraguay’s plan to legalize: 2 per cent of everything grown will be given to medpot patients who need it free of charge. That’s a vastly better policy than, say, Canada, which still insists on taxing medical marijuana.
