Editor's Comment: I can only imagine how much stuff gets smuggled across the border between Panama and Costa Rica on a daily basis. This is about the first time I've seen a story about any effort to shut it down. With regards to the stuff the was trying to smuggle in, it's a herbicide approved by the EPA in the United States for use on soybeans. I suspect they were just trying to bypass border controls to avoid payment of taxes or something like that.
