Re: Isapre Prices

Keep in mind you're getting a year older, with each increase. That probably accounts for part of it.

Re: good place to buy meat and cheese around la serena/ovalle?

I've never looked. But if I had to guess, I'd try La Recova in La Serena. There's also a good feria on Ruta 5, here: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Terminal+Pesquero+La+Garza,+Coquimbo/@-29.9657832,-71.3215712,551m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x9691c910c4719601:0xaabb845e9cefd806!8m2!3d-29.9651819!4d...

Re: Scotiabank launches an "Account for Foreigners"

Banco Estado has a new one too: https://www.bancoestado.cl/imagenes/_personas/productos/cuentas/chequera-electronica.asp At least I think it's new. My accountant recommended it, but I haven't researched it much myself. It's a cuenta vista, without the cuenta RUT limits. I think you can attach a line...

Re: is growing marijuana legal in Chile

I get what they are trying to do, and it is working. they figure by just overwhelming society with it's use, they desensitize society to it. at some point the government will just cave and legalize it. sort of a passive protest. I've noticed that with other things. It seems like the strategy is to ...

Re: is growing marijuana legal in Chile

yea, Chileans running around telling gringos that it is legal is what has been getting gringos in trouble for years. I just meant that people around here are always smoking it, as if it's already legal. Noone's actually told me that it's legal. Yeah theres a lot of that that goes on, I hink that's ...

Re: is growing marijuana legal in Chile

Has to do with medical need, there is an organization that helps with this. If you ask at the grow shop they will give contact info. I might have made a mistake as it may be three not five plants. But this org supposedly helps with getting this permiso. Either way, still a grey area for a foreigner...

Re: is growing marijuana legal in Chile

No, it's not legal and the law allowing medical cannabis usage hasn't passed the senate yet. Selling growing supplies is legal though. See this thread for the details: https://www.allchile.net/viewtopic.php?t=16457 Thanks, I just got done reading that thread. At least it seems to be heading in the ...

Re: is growing marijuana legal in Chile

Grow shops are ubiquitous these days, there must be at least five or more in my locale of 120.000 inhabitants. Review the past threads on this, this is not something a PD or naturalized citizen should be testing with as it is still a grey area. You are free to test the five plant limit WITH the cor...

Re: giving away an old car

think of it this way. cost of the car should be at least you never having responsibility for it again. Yep, that's exactly what I'm trying to do. I gave away an old Blazer, back in Michigan. And the guy never transfered the title, like he said he would. Then I got fined for an abandoned vehicle in ...

is growing marijuana legal in Chile

I was walking around La Serena today, looking for some wool socks--I think I was on Plat--and I saw a sign for a store that sold supplies for growing pot. But I didn't think that was legal yet. Did something change? I'm interested because of the medicinal uses:)
