Sentiments in Latin America in favor of outlawing marijuana appear to be undergoing shifts in some countries, according to a study published the International Journal of Drug Policy. In some parts of the region, more than 40% of respondents supported legalizing the drug, while in other, more conservative areas, support remained minimal. "In recent years Latin American countries have increasingly rejected the traditional prohibitionist paradigm of drug policy, reflecting its failure to reduce either consumption or trafficking."
