Every Thursday, international attorneys Fred Rocafort and Jonathan Bench discuss legal and economic developments around the world with the help of their international guests. No topic is too big, too small, too simple, or too complicated. They cover continents, countries, regimes, governance, finances, legal developments and whatever is trending in global law and business.

Both Jonathan and Fred are both accomplished international cannabis lawyers in addition to everything else that they do. In Episode #7, we are joined from Montevideo by attorney Dr. Rodolfo Perdomo, of Perdomo Abogados, to discuss Uruguay’s cannabis industry. We cover:

  • Former President José “Pepe” Mujica’s critical role in making Uruguay the first country in the world to legalize recreational cannabis.
  • The current legal framework for cannabis in Uruguay—and why there is no going back for the country when it comes to cannabis.
  • Uruguay’s aspirations to become a world hub for cannabis research and production, and its new related legislation.
  • Why Uruguay is a welcoming and attractive destination for foreign investors, and not just those in the cannabis sector.
  • At least one important thing you should know about Uruguay, aside from cannabis! (Hint: 1930 and 1950).
  • Reading recommendations from:
