As part of the Latin American Marijuana Research Initiative (LAMRI), Dr. José Miguel Cruz, LACC’s Director of Research, Rosario Queirolo and María Fernanda Boidi released new findings about the marijuana legalization process in Uruguay. “Saying no to weed: Public opinion towards cannabis legalization in Uruguay” is available for reading.

LACC’s LAMRI team conducted a workshop in Universidad Católica del Uruguay with authorities related to the implementation of the cannabis law in Uruguay, social organizations and researchers, to discuss some the results of the research.
José Miguel Cruz, María Fernanda Boidi and Rosario Queirolo analyzed LAPOP data to identify "Determinants of Public Support for Marijuana Legalization in Uruguay, the United States, and El Salvador." Although Uruguay and the United States followed different paths to legalization, factors for predicting positive attitudes toward marijuana regulation are related to political tolerance, ideology, and views on government. http://jod.sagepub.com/content/early/2016/05/17/0022042616649005.abstract
