Expat Files – 12.23.16

#1- Recreational Drugs in Latin America: almost everything you wanted to know, err…almost.

#2- Uruguay and the “so called” free cannabis state. What they didn’t tell you in all the decriminalization hub bub and what you should really know  – be careful what you wish for.
How the simple advent of legal recreational marijuana has caused tremendous bureaucratic nightmares. Uruguay’s sluggish Big Brother has bureaucratized and hamstring pharmacies and cannabis suppliers to the point of ridiculousness. Are you surprised?

#3 -What if in the unlikely event you happen to have drugs on you or in the car, while stopped by Latin cops? Not that you’d ever do that stuff- but just in case- here are some true stories…

#4 Why is Johnny Walker is the boozers of choice throughout Latin America? Even the lower classes who can ill afford anything but cheap rot gut called “guaro” will break out the “Johnny W”at most events because it to them it shows a certain class and worldliness (duh.. so they think). So how’d that stupid gringo wanabee trend get started?
