Costa Rica Update on the Medical Cannabis Bill #19256

The remaining senator that had filed a number of “motions to stop” the Medical Cannabis bill has taken back many of his motions and the remaining 33 were voted down in the congress a few weeks ago.  After going to Denver in late August and meeting with many cannabis industry officials many of his concerns were addressed first hand.

Changes to the text of #19256 have been made, but as of now we are not sure of the final text, more changes can still accrue. We can say that there will be 42 Grow Licenses, with three different size licenses. There will be 55 licenses for dispensaries throughout the country and 178 Hemp licenses. Until passage of the bill we will not know the license application process.

The Cannabis Industry Association Costa Rica had a booth at the Marijuana Business Conference in Las Vegas last week.  Executive Director Timothy Morales said “We met many people that have a connection to Costa Rica and the interest was great. We look forward to working with many of these people going forward.”

We hope this bill will be voted on before the holiday break.

Pura Vida!
