Where is marijuana fully legal?

    No country permits free unlimited use of marijuana; in no jurisdiction is it fully legal. Those few areas that permit marijuana use still have many restrictions on it:
    California allows use of marijuana as a decree medicine, for its pain-alleviating and relaxant effects; there is a account of altitude for which it may be prescribed.

    Other areas in the USA accept legalised marijuana, but the federal laws of the country trump accompaniment laws, authoritative these accompaniment and bounded laws somewhat extraneous and pointless. However, it is a blurred affair (given the coil of statements that is the the Bill Of Rights). Basically, a federal abettor may arraign a getting breaking a federal law, but the federal government cannot force or crave the accompaniment government to abetment in such case or analysis and so abounding users escape punishment.

    Marijuana in the Netherlands, adverse to accepted belief, is illegal. However, the government has a action of non-enforcement as a break of 'soft' drugs from 'hard' ones. This involves humans who accept basal amounts (5 plants or 5 grams per developed is the guideline amount) not getting prosecuted or even investigated. "Coffee shops" are aswell generally larboard alone, provided they accept beneath than assertive amounts on site.

    India allows its auction for some Hindu rituals. All (legal) sales are fabricated in government-owned shops.

    Iranians use the seeds as a food, so their use this way is legal. Use as a consciousness-expanding is illegal; about because of the ample amount of added herbs that are acceptable and legal, case for this is rare.

    Some added countries acquiesce claimed use and some baby control alone (cultivation is sometimes permitted; ambidextrous and trafficking are consistently still illegal). They include:
    Argentina
    Some states in Australia
    Belgium
    Chile
    Colombia
    Croatia
    Czech Republic
    Germany - if the amount is small, any possessed plant or drugs will be confiscated, but not prosecuted.
    Macedonia
    Mexico
    Peru - possession of limited amounts is legal as long as the person does not possess any other drugs.
    Portugal
    Russia
    Spain
    Uruguay - personal use is legal but sale is not. The law does not specify an amount regarded as/as not for personal use.
    Venezuela - possession in small amounts requires a person to take a drug rehabilitation course, but no prosecution.

    If I were to go anywhere in the world for enjoying mj it would probably be either California or Spain. Beautiful land, beautiful people, beautiful weather, and you can easily grow without being harassed. I've heard it's basically legal in Spain so long as it's not a commercial operation. People grow in plain view of helicopters on their rooftops in the city. In California all you need is a doctor's recommendation for anxiety, and that is your card - you don't have to register with the state. At that point it's basically legal and you can even sell (legality may be dubious, but people are generally getting away with it, look at the size of the dispensary scene).

    Holland on the other hand is really overrated...

    Depends what part of California, I guess.

    There's no way you're more worried than if you were in, say, Tulsa and faced SWAT teams every time they got a tip that you had 0.01g of scraped resin in your apartment... along with any local thugs who know you'll never call the cops cause the mj laws are so harsh...

    i guess it's not technically legal in portugal either.. it's just not a criminal offense...

    In July 2001 in Portugal a new law maintained the status of illegality for using or possessing any drug for personal use without authorization. The offense was changed from a criminal one, with prison a possible punishment, to an administrative one if the possessing was no more than up to ten days' supply of that substance.[1] This was in line with the de facto Portuguese drug policy before the reform. Drug addicts were then to be aggressively targeted with therapy or community service rather than fines or waivers.[7] Even if there are no criminal penalties, these changes did not legalize drug use in Portugal. Possession has remained prohibited by Portuguese law, and criminal penalties are still applied to drug growers, dealers and traffickers.[8][9]

    Uruguay moves to legalize marijuana

    http://www.torontosun.com/2012/06/29/uruguay-moves-to-legalize-marijuana

    Calling it an anti-crime measure, Uruguayan President Jose Mujica wants his country to legalize marijuana.
    The government would be the sole producers and distributors of pot in Uruguay.
    Mujica argues the traditional approach of interdiction hasn’t worked, that increasing drug violence has become a serious concern and that marijuana is less harmful than the black market to his country.
    Under Uruguay’s proposed law, people will only be able to purchase marijuana through state-run agencies, which Mujica says would oversee the quality and quantity.
    The law, which must still pass the Congress, would see the government selling controlled amounts of marijuana — reportedly about 40 cigarettes — to citizens who are 18 years of age or older, thereby depriving criminal gangs of their profits.
    Taxes from the sale of pot would be used to fund rehabilitation centres.
    Mujica also feels if users have legal access to marijuana, they will stay away from hard drugs like cocaine.
    Of course, those opposed to the legalization of marijuana will argue it’s a gateway drug that leads to harder drugs such as cocaine.
    But there is as much evidence that this is not the case, that many people who move on to hard drugs would do so without pot use. They are just wired that way.

    etc...

    (however this does Violate some free trade or some law that forbids it)

    Uruguay is just hoping to cash in on a bit of tax revenue.. Given the climate, and international demand they wouldn't even touch the serious criminal aspect.. And that's assuming that the government decided to sell it cheaper than the local black-market could bear to beat which isn't bloody likely.. It's typically cheaper to buy weed on the streets than from dispensaries elsewhere.. And the bit about replacing harder drugs has always been idiotic where it's been used.. It's not true for tobacco, it's not true for cocaine, it's not true for meth, it's not true for heroin, it's not true for alcohol, heck I've even seen ppl who aren't even content with weed if hash/oil is their drug of choice or vice versa..
