When Uruguay fully legalized marijuana in December 2013, legislators were thinking about public safety, not about creating an industry. Implementing the law has been challenging, but in the past year or two, things started to move faster. Now the country offers business opportunities in sectors related to cannabis—from growing exclusively for the recreational market to partnering with local institutions to conduct research.

You’ll get insights on:

  • What sectors of the industry in Uruguay offer the most enticing opportunities for entrepreneurs.
  • How to get a hemp license—and what you can do with it.
  • What the medical market looks like—including opportunities to produce cannabis and export from Uruguay, as well as import ingredients into the country.
  • Attractive prospects on the adult-use side of the industry.
