Drug Czar Moving To Kill Cannabis Registry For Home Growers And Increase Sales Channels For Weed

National Drug Board Secretary General Daniel Radío is turning his attention to the local cannabis market after beginning to cut regulatory barriers slowing the placement of Uruguayan cannabis flower on international markets. In an interview with Radio Uruguay 1050 AM, Radío offered hints as to the direction he and the government are moving towards with respect to the domestic cannabis market:

Hay que entrar a pensar la eventualidad de que no en todos los casos de acceso a cannabis sea necesario estar registrado

The "access to all fun must be made not fun via application of tramités and paperwork" pushed in the Frente Amplio's governments doesn't seem to have been very necessary. It also introduced substantial friction for tourists seeking to exchange their money for local cannabis flowers.

En el caso de los autocultivadores sabemos que hay un gran subregistro. Cada un autocultivador que está registrado hay al menos dos que no lo están (...) me parece que hay que repensar eso. Nos está pasando que tenemos un subregistro muy grande, es muy difícil de fiscalizar

Even with homegrowing being the clearly winning registry for people electing to register, who has time for the paperwork? It's not like police or prosecutors can chase unregistered plants when they law creating the registry didn't even give them easy access to who is or isn't registered.

Hoy no tenemos suficiente producción, no satisfacemos la demanda. Tenemos solo dos empresas que producen cannabis para uso no médico y están autorizadas a producir un tope de dos toneladas al año y entre ambas no llegan a una tonelada

That Pharmacy cannabis sales channel does not and never did have the supply necessary to satisfy demand.

Hay personas que no están dispuestas a proporcionar sus datos personales para el registro y la comercialización exclusivamente en farmacias genera que en algunos lugares del país no se pueda comercializar, por la sencilla razón de que no hay ninguna farmacia dispuesta a comercializar cannabis

The ways in which the Pharmacy sales channel failed to actually work for selling could continue to be listed to the point of exhaustion.
