Uruguay's Senate last week approved the world's first national marketplace for legal marijuana as President Jose Mujica aims to drive drug traffickers out of the dope business and reduce consumption by creating a safe, legal and transparent environment. Thousands of people massed in the main square of Colombia's capital throughout the week to show support for Bogota Mayor Gustavo Petro, the former rebel-turned-politician fired by the country's inspector-general amid charges he overreached constitutionally. And Argentine club Lanus on Wednesday won its first international title by defeating Ponte Preta of Brazil 2-0 in the Copa Sudamericana final.
