With all due respect to La Presidente, I think she has it exactly backwards. People in CO and WA states will be growing their own plants or obtaining the bud from state licensed outlets.
I have serious doubts that doctors and states will be buying baggies or bricks of marijuana from Mexican cartels. It's the cartels who should start to worry, methinks. The demand for their illegal product will be impacted negatively.
If I was a severely cynical person, I might surmise that the real concern of the C.R. government is a reduction in the flow of bribes to them from the Colombian cartels passing their drugs through Costa Rica. But, let's not go there!
