Argentina. Protests in 19 cities against cannabis prohibition


end prohibition

Above, protests in Argentina against cannabis prohibition
According to THC Magazine, around 150,000 people in 19 Argentinian cities have taken part in organised protest marches to complain about the current cannabis laws.  South America remains a hot-bed of activity for cannabis campaigners who sense that politicians have never been closer to ending the general prohibition of cannabis.  Uruguay has already fully legalised cannabis and many other South American leaders are seriously questioning whether they can justify the social and financial cost of maintaining prohibition.  
Although South American cannabis laws continue to improve, Argentinean cannabis lovers want their political leaders to follow Uruguay and adopt a fully legal system.  Not only would this reduce policing and court costs, but legalisation of cannabis is the best way to completely remove criminal involvement in the production and distribution of cannabis.  The only beneficiaries of current laws are the bosses of criminal gangs who enjoy a tax-free monopoly position in a massive market which has been voluntarily gifted to them by politicians.
