    I highly doubt that Washington is going to license facilities from other states or countries. Licensing a facility in Idaho, for instance, is just going to be an admission that they are raising pot in a state where it isn't yet legal and opens the door for the feds to come in, inspect the list of licensed growers, and pay the Gem State entrepreneurs a visit. I'm not up on the laws for growing bud in BC, but I don't think you can grow it in a large scale operation for export. As for Mexico or Colombia – not likely.

    As more states join in and allow growing marijuana your proposal makes sense, and sooner rather than later might be the time to start considering such things, but for right now I think there are other more important things to take care of, like dealing with the Feds and working out who gets to sell, where and when.

    The thought that life could be better is woven indelibly into our hearts and our brains. – Paul Simon, "Train In The Distance."
