Yes, aspirin costs $1.39 for a bottle of hundreds. Cocaine and meth aren't like Viagra or Prozac that requires billions of dollars of research to identify and produce ... peasants in central American countries (coke), and condo dwellers using hardware store chemicals (meth)make them by the ton all the time. And pot just about grows on trees. Tell me, do you think people would pay you $20 for a little handful of legal weed clippings?

Do you both believe that the "little guy" will be allowed to continue to make, smuggle, or distribute drugs? Or will there be "purity" and "safety" standards demanded by the public and naturally, the politicians will respond.
I seem to remember reading on this website about marijuana in Canada. Seems the Canadian government allows it for medical uses. The Canadian govnerment spent MILLIONS of dollars creating a factory in an abandoned salt mine. It costs them more than the "street" cost. Then the patients got mad because it did not give them much of a high.
I wish Libertarians luck on this project. At least now, we will be able to see if their ideas are stupid or right-on. Then we wouldn't have these kinds of endless (and useless) conversations.
