The Latin American Marijuana Research Initiative (LAMRI) was established to monitor the process of cannabis regulation in Uruguay, as well as to study related debates being held and new developments occurring throughout the hemisphere. As its name implies, LAMRI is an academic initiative whose main objective is to collect, analyze, and provide rigorous scientific data and information to social actors (governments, academicians, and general public) interested in marijuana policy in the region and world.

LAMRI is composed of academics from the Universidad Católica del Uruguay, the Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center at Florida International University, and Insights Research & Consulting; it is funded by the Open Society Foundations.

This website aims at centralizing and organizing the research on marijuana legalization conducted by LAMRI so that the public may access our findings and information related to cannabis regulation in the region.
