Resumen: The purpose of this study is to test if the legalization of recreational marihuana implies an increase in the number of new consumers and if, at the same time, the teenager's perception of the substance is affected by the measure. A historical review of cannabis focusing on its uses and legal status throughout the time was performed in order to have a solid background of the topic. Then, why and how Uruguay and Canada recently legalized the plant was analysed, pointing out the differences between the two approaches: socialist vs capitalist. The case of the United States is also considered, explaining the current legal situation of the substance in the country. Finally, using data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) a quantitative analysis was conducted in the United States. It was concluded that the legalization of recreational marihuana potentially implies a positive increase in the number of new consumers of the drug and, on the other side, that the perception of teenagers regarding the drug is not likely to be affected by the new legal status of the plant.
