You are one work of (something).

Assuming he was on some “new, poorly-understood legal-for-now drug”; I know I can count on you to demand it be kept legal and available for use by any adult, right?

Making it illegal would only lead to the next poorly-understood legal-for-now drug - and keeping well understood and comparatively benign drugs like marijuana illegal incentivized its creation and use.

They ARE available for purchase by any adult (or child for that matter). Instead of having legal, safe, natural drugs for adults in a regulated market, they sell these unknown chemicals as bathsalts, potpouri, spices, etc. These chemicals would NEVER exist on store shelves if natural plants and derivatives were legal and sold at their true market price.

New synthetic drugs are created before the bans are signed and there is potentially a limitless amount of synthetics that can be made. These synthetics are more dangerous in every way than the natural drugs and are constantly changing before they can be studied. Finding, testing and creating legislation for all those invented chemicals is impossible in any practical sense.

In a nutshell, they banned cocaine to stop the “cocaine crazed negroes” boogieman. Then the free market encouraged synthetic replacements (bathsalts) and turned people into real man-eating naked zombies.

The more the WOD attacks the popular relatively safe drugs, the more people will create and use synthetics that are far, far worse.
