All of us understood that Nobel peace price was a POS, when they gave it to obama.
Now, here's one more:

Uruguay's president nominated for Nobel Peace Prize for legalizing marijuana

The president of Uruguay has been nominated for this year's Nobel Peace Prize. According to his advocates, José "Pepe" Mujica's much talked-about marijuana legalization is in fact "a tool for peace and understanding."

For the second year in a row, the Drugs Peace Institute, which has supported Mujica's marijuana legalization drive since 2012, insisting that the consumption of marijuana should be protected as a human right, has endorsed his candidacy, along with members of Mujica's leftwing political party the Frente Amplio, the PlantaTuPlanta (Collective of Uruguayan growers) and the Latin American Coalition of Cannabis Activists (CLAC).

Despite an avalanche of global criticism, in late December Uruguay became the first country in the world to fully legalize the production and sale of the popular herbal drug. Under the new law, which comes into full effect in early April, Uruguayans will have several options to gain access to it.

The Drugs Peace Institute said that Mujica's stand against the UN-led prohibition of mind-altering substances is a "symbol of a hand outstretched, of a new era in a divided world."

Nobel peace prize can only restore its sheen by going either to Malala Yousafzai or Edward Snowden.
