50 years ago today: Illegal drug trade became a crime

Original text published by La Nacion on 13 July 1972

The College of Physicians and Surgeons informed the public that the new penal code, promulgated by Law No. 4573 of May 4 last, classified the illegal practice of medicine as a crime. In addition, the punishment was increased for those who indulged in this public act.

Now, Article 269 of the Penal Code says: “The illegal practice of a drug shall be punishable with imprisonment of either description for six months to three years.”

The reform of the penal code also stipulates that, notwithstanding the relevant titles, doctors “declared or promised or by secret or infallible means the cure of diseases of certain duration” shall be sanctioned.



That overo, sardo, achiotillo or moro Colorado cattle, which gave birth to cows called cajuelaras, very meek, and large bulls, capable of piling and pulling up to two tons, disappeared from Costa Rican farms. And it was precisely these cows that fed rural Costa Rica, as most small farmers had their dorm vaquitas in the paddock, without any special care, without any other food other than the small grasses that grew there, or “macatazo”. According to the system called. ,

Those cows produced strong and safe oxen which, in the words of Don Ricardo Jiménez: “I know oxen, and still are, which weigh between 600 and 700 kg, but dorum blood (or Durham,) in English), and not to Spanish Creole”. This breed was imported from England between 1840 and 1850.

Before continuing, it is good to warn: do not confuse Creole cattle with the so-called avocado, it is the product of many crosses and therefore its origin is difficult to determine, but whose blood base is probably Spanish Creole. The dorum was maintained for almost a century, those who identify it, the product of a cross, which, according to Joaquín Vargas Cotto, was imported from England to Costa Rica between 1840 and 1850.

“When the war of 1856 happened, there were already British bulls here. Around that time Don Mariano Fernández and his relative Don Santiago Fernández brought ‘Devonshire’ bulls and cows, also English. This blood, along with the blood of Dorum, contributed to giving us the big oxen and the famous Cajuelaros cows,” said Vargas.

The importation of other breeds of cattle drove Dorum into oblivion. Gradually the old cows stopped being productive and ended their days in the Alajuela cattle market or in the now defunct San Jose (now in Barrio Mexico). And the farmer lost the best source of food for himself and his children.

Military control over Brazil will continue

President Emilio G. Medici has virtually ruled out the possibility of a change in Brazil’s political system, disappointing those who glimpse the signs of democracy on the horizon.

In his radio broadcast to the country last week, the 66-year-old general clearly indicated that the 1964 military revolution had no intention of loosening his control over the country. The press had speculated with “a democratic opening in the system”. Reports of high-level changes in the cabinet attracted more attention.

Medici denied all those conjectures. He spoke of economic progress, confirmed that the government was backed by public opinion and said it could not accept “any change in governance”. The tone led many to believe that “temporary” military intervention in politics had acquired a new degree of stability.
