Uruguay’s president has accused the head of the UN’s International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), Raymond Yans, of lying and double standards, after the official claimed the country did not consult the anti-drug body before legalizing marijuana. Earlier this week, Uruguay became the first country in the world to legalize both the sale and production of marijuana. Yans has accused Uruguay of "pirate attitudes" for knowingly violating the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, which the South American country is part of.
