COSTA RICAN STUDY (1980)

    The Jamaican results were largely confirmed by another Caribbean 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. (ISHI, 3401 Scientific Center, Philadelphia.)

    Again researchers found no palpable damage to the native population’s chronic cannabis smokers. Alcoholic social problems, so evident on neighboring cannabis-free islands, are not found in Costa Rica.

    This study makes clear that socially approved ganja use will largely replace the use of alcohol (rum) if available.
