Uruguay has made history last year when it became the first country in the world to legalise the growing, selling and comsumtion of marijuana. The US-led ‘war on drugs’ as widely been seen as a failure due to crime and endless bloodshed, which has led Latin American nations to openly debating the legalization of drugs. In the US some states have also moved towards legalization of the drug. There are 25 million active marijuana users in the US, with 750.000 being arrested for it in 2011. Enforcing marijuana laws in the US is responsible for a potential loss of around 41 billion dollars. (Al Jazeera, 2014)
