The Uruguayan Congress is debating President Jose Mujica's proposal to fight organized crime by legalizing the production and sale of marijuana. A vote is expected late Wednesday, July 31, 2013 on the proposal to license growers, sellers and consumers, with a confidential registry to keep people from buying more than 40 grams a month. Anyone carrying, growing or selling pot without a license would face stiff penalties including long prison terms. (AP Photo/Matilde Campodonico, File)
