Alright, I think I see what you are saying now. Not that they would produce some “safe”, non-addicting drugs, just that we could put some limits on the purity and the strength, to moderate the addictiveness and bad side effects.

We’d still always have a few people that would try to cook up stronger drugs, but we still have people that cook up moonshine so they can get something stronger than the 80 or 100 proof stuff that the state regulates. They’re a minority and they don’t cause a lot of problems. Most people would probably be happy with the 5% THC weed cigarettes or the “Meth Lite” they could buy at the 7-11.

Exactly. Most people will satisfy themselves with products with relatively low highs and low rates of addiction.

By introducing legal competition, it would likely lower the cost of drugs, reducing the incentive to rob and pillage, because the drugs that are costing $500 on the street could be had for $20 or so at a liquor outlet, or 7/11.
