A Start to the End of the Phony Worldwide War on Drugs – Uruguay To Legalize and Sell Marijuana - Legalize Decriminalize and Close Up Other Drug Gateways
If it goes on to be approved by the Senate, Uruguay will become the first country to regulate the production, distribution and sale of marijuana.
The law is backed by the government of President Jose Mujica, which says it will remove profits from drug dealers and divert users from harder drugs.
Under the bill, only the government would be allowed to sell marijuana.
The state would assume "the control and regulation of the importation, exportation, plantation, cultivation, the harvest, the production, the acquisition, the storage, the commercialisation and the distribution of cannabis and its by-products".
Buyers would have to be registered on a database and be over the age of 18. They would be able to buy up to 40g (1.4oz) per month in specially licensed pharmacies or grow up to six plants at home.
Greedy Queen Elizabeth Employs Slave Labor Tactics to Save a Few Million on The Buckingham Palace Summer Zoo Crew – Zero Hours Contracts – No Benefits – No Guarantee of Minimum Hours
The contracts have proved popular with employers as they do not set a minimum number of hours that have to be worked, allowing firms to draft in extra staff at short notice during busy periods.
But trade unions have warned that some employers have used them to deny basic rights to workers.
Those employed under the contracts say they do not know if or when they will be working from one week to the next, making family and childcare commitments impossible.
Buckingham Palace uses the contracts for temporary staff working in its shop and the State Rooms during the summer.
A spokesman for the Royal Collection Trust, which employs the temporary workforce, denied that the deal equated to a zero-hour contract.
She conceded that employees were not guaranteed work but said rotas were issued around a month in advance, meaning workers could plan around their hours.
A copy of a staff contract from 2009 stated: ‘Your hours of work will be advised by the visitor manager and will be dependent upon the requirements for retail assistants at Buckingham Palace as and when required.’
Somewhere on the timeline of trying to return the middle class to slaves to serve inbred idiots like the “Royal” Windsor Parasites is Zero Hours Contracting for Temps.
While it might be a good thing to share some summer chump change with high school students who want to work at the palace and put it on the resume.
This whole intern, slave labor, on-call 24/7, show up or die kind of lazy, lazy, evil management with no benefits employment is something that is not down the road in America but just around the corner at Wal-Mart?
