In order to evaluate the impact of the current legalization experiences, it is cru-cial to measure their efects both on public health and on users’ criminalization and contacts with illegal activities. The Uruguay-an cannabis regulation model is a middle-ground option between prohibition and commercialization, in which the govern-ment imposes strict regulations for users: mandatory registry, maximum amount of cannabis per user (40 g per month and 480 g per year), no advertisement, no selling to tourists, no edibles allowed. These restric-tions were planned to control consumption and accomplish the public health goal of the regulation.
