Interested in doing more "Cannabis in [country]" articles?[edit]

Nice work on Cannabis in El Salvador! Are you interested in doing more of these? Do you have any particular ones, or a region, that you want to cover? I'm working on covering all possible countries, but I'm happy to set aside the ones you want to work on yourself, and I'd welcome some help dealing with the remaining ones.

Hey, thanks for the kind words. I really just created that article because of your latest comment on WT:420, which I took as a challenge :)
I'm mainly interested in Latin America, and Cannabis in the Dominican Republic and Cannabis in Haiti are the only countries left in that region, so I may work on those in the future. I'm definitely interested in expanding the articles that already exist, though. Especially Cannabis in Mexico. Thanks for all your work on the Wikiproject, and happy holidays. --Surachit (talk) 04:50, 25 December 2017 (UTC)
No worries, I can leave you the Latin America ones (don't forget Cannabis in Nicaragua too). I just did a full reconcile of the Legality of cannabis by country against the list of countries and found a number we hadn't included, and then I reconciled the Redlinks list too, so we should have a pretty clear idea what we have and what we're missing. And if you're able to expand Cannabis in Mexico that'd be awesome; I think there's a lot of history there that we don't cover very well, though I added some Spanish colonial history in just a week or so ago. We could definitely use some coverage as to how/when it gained popularity in Mexico, began to concern the government, etc. And of course keeping it current with any news is always good. Glad to be working with you, this is an interesting topic! Goonsquad LCpl Mulvaney (talk) 05:21, 25 December 2017 (UTC)
By the way, can you read Spanish, or need any help with that part? Goonsquad LCpl Mulvaney (talk) 09:44, 27 December 2017 (UTC)
And if you're looking for another good candidate for expansion, Cannabis in Afghanistan kinda stalls out in the 1970s, so could use some coverage of hashish/cannabis during the wars of the 80s-90-00-10 decades. There's also a useful untapped source:

Thanks for the heads up, I might look into that. It does seem like there would be plenty of sources to expand that. By the way, I wasn't able to find any sources for a Dominican Republic article, not even in Spanish (which I can read). Surachit (talk) 04:45, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Yeah, it's really getting slim pickings for sources on the last 25 countries; can maybe get just a few more from what we have on gBooks and gNews:
