A survey conducted by CID Gallup notes that 6 out of 10 Costa Ricans support the use of cannabis for medicinal use.

According to the information released by Repretel, young people under the age of 24 are the ones who accept the subject the most. Data show that more than 60% support general use.

The survey of 1288 people shows that the 639 is "very much agreed" and the 488 "some agree."

Opinions against

One of the reasons people have an opinion against it is because of these people's fear of abuse or of legalization equal to that of alcohol and tobacco. Of this group 450 people said they "have no agreement" and 282 said they agreed "little agreement."

Since 2014 the country has been officially discussing this issue. At the national level, various proposals have been put forward with the intention of regulating medical cannabis and hemp for industrial use. During the first official party government, the deputy of the Citizen Action Party (PAC), Marvin Atencio presented a first bill that did not bear fruit due to different interests of the firm during the discussion.

Important events during this period are CannaCosta  2015, Expo 420 in 2018 and different cannabis cups organized by different people from the community.

Over the past year, a law proposed by independent MEP Zoila Volio, whose draft is currently under discussion in the Committee on the Environment, has been discussed. Meanwhile, the President of the Republic, Carlos Alvarado, announced either either this month that his government will boost hemp cultivation to strengthen the industry and technological development of the sector.
