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.
