Mexico's leftist Democratic Revolution Party has suggested their nation legalise marijuana, and Uruguay's government is formulating plans to be the nation's top pot dealer.

This comes after legalising recreational marijuana use won on popular ballots in Colorado and Washington.

Two lawmakers from Mexico’s leftist Democratic Revolution Party have submitted a proposal to legalise marijuana.

A recent poll suggests most Mexicans oppose the idea.

Mexico has already decriminalised the possession of small amounts of marijuana. But the proposal submitted Thursday to the lower house of Congress would regulate legal production and distribution of marijuana, with the aim of removing a source of illegal revenue for Mexico’s drug cartels.
