( The director of the Instituto Costarricense sobre Drogas (ICD) – Costa Rican Institute on Drugs – Guillermo Araya, raised his voice and reminded the people who are behind the business of selling marijuana, that this activity is still illegal in Costa Rica.

Araya made the public statement because in recent years a media validation has been identified that promotes the cultivation, use, sale, and distribution of cannabis in different presentations as if it were legal.

Araya made it clear that in the country, the consumption of marijuana is not punishable, but the law does typify 14 verbs related to the way in which marijuana reaches the hands of consumers.

The Director of the ICD recalled that Article 58 of Law 8204 punishes with jail, from 8 to 15 years, those who without legal authorization, distribute, trade, supply, manufacture, elaborate, refine, transform, extract, prepare, cultivate, produce, transport, store or sell marijuana.
