If amphetamines weren't banned the way they have been since the mid eighties, people would just go to their doctor and get them the same way they did for years.
Look at how many people died as a result of the nanny state taking away good speed and replacing it with Fen-Fen, which in turn damaged heart valves. (But at least they weren't taking that devil speed that doctors had been safely prescribing for years!)
Bottom Line: The drug laws give the government power. Government never gives up power. Voluntarily. At some point we are going to have to address that.
so you want to bring back speed and amphetamines ... for the kids right?
Under what pretense would people using bath salts go to the doctor for drugs?
Doctors take an oath to civilized society to medically heal people, not to supply drugs so people can abuse them to get high.
