milton-romani2Uruguayans will be able to choose from three varieties of state-sanctioned cannabis when marijuana starts being sold in pharmacies next year, the National Drug Board said. Each variety will have different levels of the mind-altering compound tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), believed to soften the impacts of THC, said the board's president, Milton Romani. "There will be three options with indications about the effects of each that point beginners toward starting with the lowest level" of THC, Romani said.
