The Cannabis Republic of Uruguay

Will the first fully legalised country be a smoker's paradise?

At the end of 2013, Uruguay became the first country in the world to fully legalise marijuana. VICE correspondent Krishna Andavolu heads over to Uruguay to check out how the country is adjusting to a legally regulated marijuana market.

Along the way, he meets up with Uruguay's president, José Mujica, to burn one down and talk about the president's goal of a chicken in every pot, a car in every garage and six cannabis plants per household.
