40 grams each per month? That's maybe a bit much, but hey.. People out there are smoking 20 cigarettes a day.. That's 1.3 pounds a month... Disgusting. The world is finally going in a somewhat normalish direction.

It is hard to believe that her we are in 2013 and something as harmless as pot is finally being legalized in a few places in the world. Yet something as harmful as the US govt. is still running around killing innocent people and we are just starting to talk about stopping them!
Whew history acts very very slowly!

Governments are still afraid of Maryjane, they do not understand it, they think you will steel a drone and kill your neighbours if you smoke it. lol

I don't understand why you can't buy as much as you want. You can probably walk into a bar and get as much alcohol as you want. I mean, it's a step up from prohibition. But adults need to make up their own minds. Eff the nanny state!

Putting smugglers out of business. :)
The model is not exactly new: Holland is doing it for decades.

The requirement to "register in a private database" sounds rather suspect. Think I'd rather take my chances on the street.
