Uruguay has become the first country to legalise the growing, sale and smoking of marijuana.
A government-sponsored bill approved by 16-13 votes in the Senate provides for regulation of the cultivation, distribution and consumption of marijuana and is aimed at wresting the business from criminals in the small South American nation.
Cannabis consumers will be able to buy a maximum of 40 grams (1.4 ounces) each month from licensed pharmacies, as long as they are Uruguayan residents over the age of 18 and registered on a government database that will monitor their purchases.
When the law is implemented in 120 days, Uruguayans will be able to grow six marijuana plants in their homes a year, or as much as 480 grams (about 17 ounces), and form smoking clubs of 15 to 45 members that can grow up to 99 plants per year.
Registered drug users should be able to start buying marijuana over the counter from licensed pharmacies in April.
Previously the use of marijuana was legal in Uruguay but the cultivation and selling the drug was not.

A baby toilet training seat with a built in iPad holder has been named the worst toy of the year.
The Campaign for Commercial-Free Childhood described CTA Digital's iPotty as "the worst of the worst" in its round-up of 2013's commercially-driven toys.
"Members are appalled by the escalating push to insinuate screens into every aspect of young children’s lives," the US charity wrote on its website.
Long-established toy company Fisher-Price also came under fire from the group for its iPad Apptivity Seat, aimed at "Newborn-to-Toddler".
"Because screens can be mesmerising and babies are strapped down and “safely" restrained, it encourages parents to leave infants all alone with an iPad," the group said. "To make matters worse, Fisher-Price is marketing the Apptivity Seat - and claiming it’s educational - for newborns."
Fisher-Price, which is owned by toys giant Mattel, could not be reached for comment.
