    Yes, you posted your ignorance on the matter.

    Explain the manufacturing process for meth for me please.


    Yes, addicts are naturally going to pay more money for lesser quality crystal. Most of them are dumb-**** Republicans that saddled us with McCain last year, aren't they?
    So your real defense is that meth addicts are bright. That meth is a clean drug, and quality is the reason meth heads use meth over other (quite similar) substances.

    toxic waste is expensive to properly cleanup and dispose of.

    addicts will choose to not pay this cost.
    Do you have any idea how a manufacturing process works? A factory is probably at least 1000x more efficient than illegal cottage industry meth labs. The industrial revolution happened for a reason.

    Do you understand how government works when dealing with such harmful chemicals?

    The amount of red tape, the level of inspections, the high cost of insurance, the high demands of workers being potentially exposed to dangerous agents, etc, etc. The only way costs would not be excessive is if demand was extremely high, which is not likely given the nature of meth and its relationship with other drugs that would become legalized.

    I can’t argue with the type of libertarians that think nuclear weapons should be legal and available….same thing here. It is these issues that spawn the term losertarian.

    No problem.

    How much intelligence does it take to figure out that five bucks is less than ten?

    How much more intelligence does it take to figure out that purer poison is probably safer poison, if you just have to take poison?

    If you say so. Actually, the issue right now is that the ignorant prohibitionist policies prevent true competition in the market place so the addict is forced, by the people imposing these silly prohibitionist policies, to take what they can get because there's no choices available at all.

    Yeah, all that means the cost of the product increases so that the process is only ten times cheaper than cottage meth instead of a thousand.

    All of that is irrelevant compared to the benefits you get from factory based mass production. Cottage industries cannot compete with factories, regardless of circumstance. Being illegal just makes the disadvantage even worse.

    Drug legalization if becoming much more mainstream. California has finally managed to throw of the federal yoke. Drug legalization is one of things that makes the libertarian party appealing. I am no libertarian, but I consider the organized crime resulting from prohibition worse than the theoretical increase in drug users.

    Canadian Majority Would Legalize Marijuana: Angus Reid Global Monitor

    Look at the numbers below that of marijuana.

    Less than 10% of Canadians support legalizing hard drugs. And this is a country much more liberal than the US.

    This is simply not true in every case. Right now I can (and do) produce micro brewed beer cheaper then I can buy it….I can (and do) also grow a cheaper tomato then I can purchase.

    Unless you actually know the demand, markups, taxes, and the extraneous costs placed on responsible production, you are talking out of your ass.

    I agree on most of it, but meth is a special case.

    No, it's just one more addictive drug, is all.

    Nothing special about that.
