FWIW, I wouldn't make the trade without having previously agreed to a deal, or at least the parameters of one, with ROR.
If I was getting close to a deal with Colorado, I would say, "Before I finalize this, I want a 72 hour negotiating window with ROR to see if I can actually reach a deal with him."
You obviously do that before agreeing to ship MDZ anywhere.
So if ROR is indeed asking for $5m per year, that could sink the deal. But the reports seem to indicate that's bogus. In any case, this exclusive negotiating period with the deal contingent on a contract being reached, would end any objections that people have to this trade based on ROR's salary demands.
