MARCH 13, 2018 - LATIN AMERICA UPDATE: MARIJUANA BUSINESS DEVELOPMENTS IN URUGUAY
Only 12 of the country’s
1,000 pharmacies are currently selling nonmedical cannabis,
so large regions of the country do not have access through this
channel. The Uruguayan press reported on March 10 that five new
pharmacies will soon join the program.
s of March 4, there
were 8,250 registered home growers, 78 cannabis clubs and 21,877
Uruguayans or legal residents registered to buy nonmedical cannabis.
Only two licensed
domestic producers, ICC Labs (TSX Venture Exchange: ICC) and
Symbiosis, are allowed to supply nonmedical cannabis to pharmacies,
and both are already cultivating.
