Uruguay to Sell Marijuana for $1 a Gram

Will be first country to license and tax production

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay — Uruguay's drug czar says the country plans to sell legal marijuana for $1 per gram, though he's given higher figures in the past.

A law already passed in the lower house of Congress and expected to pass in the Senate later this year would make Uruguay the first country in the world to license and enforce rules for the production, distribution and sale of marijuana for adult consumers.
