Does this mean we'll be seeing a lowering in prices in the US, or are vendors going to keep the enlarged margin all to themselves? :cautious:
Any vendors of Vanuatu kava care to weigh in?

This whole drama was linked to domestic politics. Vanuatu just held an election and one politician hoped to get votes by making himself appear as a big defender of kava farmers. In reality most people understand that the market sets the prices and while there might be occasional problems, government-price-setting would be a disaster. The licenses will soon be renewed if they haven't been renewed already.
