With all the polarizing global marijuana news this year, it’s easy to forget the regions around the world that don’t get as much attention as North America but are nevertheless fighting cannabis prohibition and winning.
One of those fantastic regions is Central America, specifically, the beautiful nation of Costa Rica.
Tim Morales is the executive director of the Cannabis Association of Costa Rica, and one of the organizers behind this past July’s Latin America Medical Cannabis Conference held in San Jose, Costa Rica.
“It was excellent. We had people from a number of countries fly in and a couple of [Costa Rican] Senators attended both days, so it was great to see the support of politicians,” said Morales in an interview with Marijuana.com.
