You have to use Stata to write LaTeX code, which is then interpreted
externally. Stata does not interpret LaTeX mark-up internally. Note in
particular that the $ sign is used in Stata in global macro references
(when it is not taken literally as a dollar sign). So using $ $ or $$
$$ to indicate math[s] would be difficult at best in Stata.

By the way, $CO_2$ in LaTeX gives you italic "CO", which is not
standard for chemical notation.
