Costa Rica - Information Costa Rica >> Background: Map of Costa Rica Costa Rica is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Caribbean Sea to the east. Costa Rica, which means "Rich Coast", constitutionally abolished its army permanently in 1949. It is the only Latin American country included in the list of the world's 22 older democracies. Costa Rica has consistently been among the top Latin American countries in the Human Development Index (HDI), ranked 69th in the world in 2011. Also was cited by the UNDP in 2010 as one of the countries that have attained much higher human development than other countries at the same income levels, and in 2011 was highlighted by UNDP for being a good performer on environmental sustainability, and better record on human development and inequality than the median of their region. Map of Costa Rica It was also the only country to meet all five criteria established to measure environmental sustainability. The country is ranked fifth in the world, and first among the Americas, in terms of the 2012 Environmental Performance Index. In 2007, the Costa Rican government announced plans for Costa Rica to become the first carbon-neutral country by 2021. According to the New Economics Foundation, Costa Rica ranks first in the Happy Planet Index and is the "greenest" country in the world.

Costa Rica - status Legality of cannabis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia > Costa Rica | Cannabis is used in Costa Rica, in spite of it being illegal. Police officers might not arrest someone unless the amount carried is seemingly for distribution or selling. Much of it is grown in the rain forest reserves, as no person can be prosecuted for that, but more potent strains are grown hydroponically in small grow-ops in San José. There is a small percentage coming from Jamaica, but the most popular kind is grown locally. Laura Chinchilla, the president of Costa Rica (2010–2014) stated -"It must be approached very rigorously based on empiric evidence and the experiences other countries have had when boarding widely the concept of legalization [...]" after a meeting with José Miguel Insulza, Secretary General of the Organization of American States, regarding the fight against hard drug smuggling from Colombia to the USA.[32] Visit - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legality_of_cannabis

    Costa Rica - Resource: local, xxx Jaco Beach | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4.5 --- Legislation: Marijuana is illegal in Costa Rica, and so is any related action. Law Enforcement: If the cops see you smoking it they will bust you, but they will gladly take 10-20 bucks and let you go. Where to buy marijuana: I was there for quite some time and ended up with a really good hookup who goes by Shadow. If you go to any of the clubs in town after 10 or 11 at night you will surely be propositioned. They push coke really hard because they make more money on it but if you just want smoke most will have that too. If you don’t want to go to the clubs you can walk down the sidewalk by a restaurant called planet food. There are a couple of darker guys that hang out on the corner there after dark. If you look like you smoke they will ask you. If they don’t just ask them. Marijuana Prices: When I first got there I was paying $30 for a quarter from the sidewalk guy. Got him down to 20 after a few times though. Once I met my friend shadow I could get an ounce for 50. *  >> Learn more >>

    Costa Rica - Resource: local, xxx Montezuma | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4.8 --- Legislation: Marijuana is illegal in Costa Rica, and so is any related action. Members of the Public Security Ministry’s Special Support Police (PAE), also known as the “Mountain Police,” search for and manually destroy marijuana fields in the mountainous regions of northern and southern Costa Rica. Law Enforcement: I spent a few days in Montezuma, a small town on the pacific coast, and had no trouble whatsoever finding some herb. The police are practically non-existent in the town and only come out at night to walk through the park once or twice looking for a blatant offender. Where to buy marijuana: There are only 2 main roads through Montezuma. This being said, there are plenty of rastas on the side of the road sitting idle or selling handicrafts such as carved resin and wood pipes. Casually ask any of these people and you will surely be pointed in the right direction or be offered some on the spot. Also check the beaches and make some conversation as there are a few campgrounds with plenty of international backpackers who will be able to help you in your search. Montezuma marijuana prices: prices all over costa rica (for shwag) is 10 bucks a 1/2 oz. 20 for 1 oz. don’t pay any more than that. There is also Jamacian herb available for twice the price usually, and its like low-mids (they call this stuff the creepy) More Information: The herb here is nothing special, and similar to most central american weed. Brick packed, kinda stringy/stemy and dark green in color. Nothing for the connoisseur, but great blunt weed. *  >> Learn more >>

International law

Marijuana is in Schedule IV of the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, making it subject to special restrictions. Article 2 provides for the following, in reference to Schedule IV drugs:

    A Party shall, if in its opinion the prevailing conditions in its country render it the most appropriate means of protecting the public health and welfare, prohibit the production, manufacture, export and import of, trade in, possession or use of any such drug except for amounts which may be necessary for medical and scientific research only, including clinical trials therewith to be conducted under or subject to the direct supervision and control of the Party.

This provision, while apparently providing for the limitation of marijuana to research purposes only, also seems to allow some latitude for nations to make their own judgments. The official Commentary on the Single Convention indicates that Parties are expected to make that judgment in good faith.

Costa Rica - info; Medical - Cannabis is Safe Medicine Erowid Cannabis Vault : Medical - Cannabis is Safe Medicine, by Ian Williams Goddard | In reaction to medical cannabis access referendums on the ballots in Arizona and California, former presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George Bush signed a letter stating that they "categorically oppose'' access to cannabis for its many proven therapeutic uses such as the prevention of blindness and epileptic seizures [1]. Their chief concern was that legal medical access would send the message that cannabis is safe. The presidents can, however, lay their safety concerns to rest because the scientific literature overwhelmingly confirms that cannabis is both an effective and safe medicine. ... The HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL MENTAL HEALTH LETTER [11] reports the findings of other major cannabis studies: In three major studies conducted in Jamaica, Costa Rica, and Greece, researchers have compared heavy long-term cannabis users with non-users and found no evidence of intellectual or neurological damage, no changes in personality, and no loss of the will to work or participate in society. ...

Costa Rica - info; Therapeutic Uses of Cannabis Medical marijuana has been promoted for "compassionate use" to assist Therapeutic Uses of Cannabis | This paper is dedicated to everyone out there who has been forbidden a safe, natural medicine with a world of benefits far greater than most other medications known to date. It has also proven to be safer than any other alternate medication (including any over-the-counter medications currently available), and most of these alternatives are not even half as useful as this plant. I am talking about the plant which is known by the medical community as Cannabis, which is its rightful name. These Jamaican studies were largely confirmed by another Carribean study, the 1980 Cannabis in Costa Rica - A Study in Chronic Marijuana Use edited by William Carter for the Institute for Study of Human Issues. Again in this study researchers found no discernible damage to the native population's chronic cannabis smokers. However, alcoholic social problems, evident on neighboring cannabis-free islands, are not found in Costa Rica. And finally, we have the Amsterdam model - which shows a substantial reduction in cannabis consumption among teenagers and a 33% drop in the number of heroin addicts, since they adopted a policy of tolerance and non-prosecution of cannabis and hashish smokers. Their strategy of separating cannabis sales from hard drug dealers by bringing it above ground has been quite successful. (Meiseler, Stanley, "Nothing Works", L.A. Times, August 1989) Visit - http://windfoxherbal.com/windfoxherbal/articles/therapeutic_uses_of_cannabis.htm

Costa Rica - info; Medical Marijuana in the treatment of Attention Deficit Disorder Marijuana and ADD; Therapeutic uses of Medical Marijuana in the treatment of Attention Deficit Disorder, by Kort E Patterson | It was mentioned in the Portland newspaper that the Oregon Health Division is considering allowing medical marijuana to be used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) under the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act. At first glance it might seem counter-intuitive to use a medication that has a public perception of decreasing attention to treat a condition whose primary symptom is a deficit of attention. But just as taking stimulants often calms those with hyperactivity, medical marijuana improves the ability to concentrate in some types of ADD. Studies of very heavy smokers in Jamaica, Costa Rica, and Greece "found no evidence of intellectual or neurological damage, no changes in personality, and no loss of the will to work or participate in society."(17) The Costa Rican study showed no difference between heavy users (seven or more marihuana cigarettes a day) and lighter users (six or fewer cigarettes a day).(18) In addition, none of the studies involving prolonged and heavy use of medical marijuana have shown any effects on mental abilities suggestive of impairment of brain or cerebral function and cognition.(2) ...

Costa Rica - info; Medical Marijuana - Cerebral Effects Medical Marijuana - Cerebral Effects | Cerebral Effects of cannabis use, such as biochemical addiction and the potential for cerebral damage, have been studied at some length. Current advances have discredited earlier claims and offered new insights into natural cannabinoids found in the brain. Interference with dopamine production is the chemical basis of addiction in the use of alcohol, amphetamines, cocaine, nicotine, opiate compounds, and other powerful addictive substances. Clinical studies show that cannabis is dissimilar to classic addictive drugs in that it does not significantly interfere with dopamine production in the “pleasure centers” of the brain, according to the Office of Technology Assessment after ten years of research. [1] Jack Fletcher of the University of Texas has been testing the mental skills of heavy long-term cannabis users in Costa Rica for the past 25 years. Studying those who have smoked in the range of ten joints per day for more than thirty years, Fletcher has detected only minor cognitive impairments that fall well within normal ranges. Brian page, an anthropologist from the University of Miami who also took part in the study notes that, “The effects are subtle and sub-clinical.” [14] Visit - http://www.cannabismd.net/cerebral-effects/

Senate approves medical marijuana bill - Monday, December 15, 2008 | TRENTON BUREAU: A Senate committee today cleared a measure that would allow medical use of marijuana in New Jersey. The Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee voted to approve the long-stalled bill by a 6 to 1 margin; two senators abstained. The bill calls for creating “alternative treatment centers” where people with chronic and terminal diseases would be allowed access to marijuana. Supporters say marijuana is a viable treatment option to alleviate pain in many cases.

“It is the definition of basic human decency that we do whatever we can to ease the pain and suffering of people living with severe chronic and terminal diseases,” said bill sponsor Sen. Nicholas Scutari, D-Union. “When all other avenues of currently-approved pain relief have been exhausted, we need to give doctors the freedom to prescribe medical marijuana to give their patients a measure of comfort and dignity in the face of their debilitating diseases. This bill is about the most humane, compassionate option for those state residents who have nowhere else to turn in managing their illnesses.”

If ultimately approved by the full Legislature and signed by Governor Corzine, New Jersey would be the 14th state to allow medical use of marijuana.   ...   Visit - https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=106356.

The study, which was conducted over a two year period and included 775 patients from the USA, Africa, and Puerto Rico, assessed the use of cannabis as a symptom management approach for anxiety, depression, fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, and peripheral neuropathy.  27% of survey participants reported using cannabis for medicinal purposes.

Researchers wrote that cannabis use “was rated slightly more effective than antidepressants for anxiety and depression, Imodium for diarrhea, [over the counter] (OTC) medications for fatigue, and anti-epileptics and OTC medications for neuropathy” while cannabis was rated “slightly less effective for nausea than either prescribed or OTC medications.”   Authors concluded that cannabis “is perceived by users as at least as effective as prescribed medications in symptom management.”   ...   Visit - http://safeaccessnow.org/blog/?cat=22.

That’s when NORML – a non-profit advocacy group that “represents the interests of the tens of millions of Americans who smoke marijuana responsibly” – jumped in and took over. NORML’s pitch quickly became the most popular entrant in the contest. Together, we the people, are ending the US war on pot. With the last election and with the recent announcement from the attorney general in Washington DC, we are beautifully positioned to make sure a responsible, adult American citizen is never again arrested for enjoying the beauties of recreational marijuana.

The discussion should go on even if the US opposes it, Chinchilla said. "If we keep doing what we have been when the results today are worse than 10 years ago, we'll never get anywhere and could wind up like Mexico or Colombia," Chinchilla said in San Jose Wednesday in remarks reported by Bloomberg Business News. There needs to be a "serious" discussion of legalization even if the US disagrees, because Central American nations are "paying a very high price" and "we have the right to discuss it," she added.

Russia - Resources US Government Says It Will Stop Interfering with Medical Marijuana | According to this article, US Attorney General Eric Holder has said that states will be allowed to make their own rules about medical marijuana, and that the US federal government will stop raiding medical marijuana dispensaries in California. (See article “Can Marijuana Help Rescue California’s Economy?”at this link) In the 1990s, several US states passed referendums which allowed marijuana to be used legally for medical purposes. In a referendum, the registered voters vote directly on the proposed law, as opposed to the law being passed by the state legislature. Thus, when these states passed these referendums, it meant that the citizens of these states really wanted medical marijuana to be made legal.

However, in a blatant disregard for democracy and the people’s will, under the Bush administration, the national government refused to accept this law, and carried out raids of the medical marijuana dispensaries.   ...   Click > here < for more.

Medical Cannabis, History - Letter: Medical Marijuana Informational Guide on Medical Cannabis | If you have ever heard of the song, “Lets Go Get Stoned,” as sung by Ray Charles or Joe Cocker, you know the lyrics were referring to getting high or using cannabis aka marijuana. This mind altering drug goes by other names as well; names such as weed, pot, joint, blunt, hash and mary jane are quite common among users. Cannabis is a plant that contains a chemical called cannabinoids or cannabinolidic acids. Another substance that is found in cannabis is THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, which gives the users that “high” sensation. When speaking of marijuana, the actual substance used in creating the high feeling comes from the leaves and flowering tops of the cannabis plant. Marijuana is considered to be a schedule 1 controlled substance today, because of the THC, which can be highly potent, depending upon the concentration factor of the THC.

Medical Cannabis History - REEFER MADNESS BOOKS THE REEFER MADNESS ERA, REEFER MADNESS BOOKS (Info, History) By definition, it would be a contradiction in terms to list or classify a Reefer Madness book as a work of "Non-Fiction." Thus both genres are group together here simply as "Hard Cover" books; if only to distinguish them from the "Pulp Fiction" or "Dime Store novels" discussed elsewhere. However where appropriate the terms [Fiction] and [Non-Fiction] are used. Please take note - This Index consists solely of those books that the museum has been able to locate and is in no way shape or form complete. It should be thought of only as a starting point.

Medical Cannabis - Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine by Ian Williams Goddard | In reaction to medical cannabis access referendums on the ballots in Arizona and California, former presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George Bush signed a letter stating that they "categorically oppose'' access to cannabis for its many proven therapeutic uses such as the prevention of blindness and epileptic seizures. Their chief concern was that legal medical access would send the message that cannabis is safe. The presidents can, however, lay their safety concerns to rest because the scientific literature overwhelmingly confirms that cannabis is both an effective and safe medicine. The Cannabis Safety Profile. The journal PHARMACOLOGICAL REVIEWS reports that decades of research prove that, "Compared with legal drugs...marijuana does not pose greater risks." Yet based upon mortality statistics, we can safely conclude that cannabis is one of the safest medical drugs known, for, while prescription drugs, defined as safe by the FDA, kill up to 27,000 and aspirin up to 1,000 Americans per year, cannabis kills 0 per year.

"Costa Rica Lawmaker Presents Medical Cannabis Legalization Bill - The bill presented by Atencio is to regulate the cultivation, production and distribution of medical cannabis and hemp in the country. The 85-page bill would create a research institute, attached to the Ministry of Health, which would specialize in the study of medical cannabis. The institute would be responsible for granting licenses and permits and would be in charge of issuing prescription cards for patients. Costa Rica’s Health Minister, Dr. Maria Elena Lopez, expressed her support of the bill, saying that the drug has been used for a range of therapeutic purposes. “Several scientific studies have demonstrated the potential for cannabis to treat illnesses like AIDS, cancer, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis. For the health of thousands of potential patients a law is needed that adequately regulates medical production and cultivation of the plant,” Atencio said. Atencio emphasized that the bill would not legalize recreational use of the drug, and would be required to meet all other existing laws governing the use of cannabis in the country. Currently, patients who benefit from the curative properties of cannabis are looking to street drugs that are not regulated and contain high levels of THC that are not required for medical purposes. - http://www.cannabispharmacyjournal.com/2014/08/12/costa-rica-lawmaker-presents-medical-cannabis-legalization-bill/ "

"Help, the Country’s Going to Pot | Now the U.S. government is carrying its war to Costa Rica. It is supposed to be fighting all kinds of drugs, but it is easier to get the pot growers who are, in most cases, poor and defenseless farmers who find a greater return on their labor cultivating pot. I don't know what the current punishment for possession is in Costa Rice, but I do know there are many people in prison in the States for the nonviolent crime of having small amounts of grass. I suppose I could have gone to prison myself. I would like to see Costa Rica decriminalize marijuana, but there are some problems. In this land of peace, pura vida, beautiful scenery and friendly people, not to mention ideal climate (and given the unhappy circumstances in the U.S.), if pot were made legal, too many tourists might never leave. Then we would have overcrowding and all of the problems that come with that. Visit - http://www.amcostarica.com/102502.htm "
