    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.
    Last I checked, you can't make either of those in a factory. Meth simply requires that chemicals be combined in the right proportion, nothing organic about them. Its a simple assembly line process with bulk purchases of raw materials. Can you make aspirin cheaper than you can buy in the store?

    Unless you actually know the demand, markups, taxes, and the extraneous costs placed on responsible production, you are talking out of your ass.
    You are ignoring the realities of mass produced goods. Meth can be produced legitimately, sold at profit with high government taxes, and still be much cheaper than anything available today.

    I am not a social conservative by most folk's standards. (But I make up for it with my other conservative traits. )

    I'm all for the legalization of pot. That's the only one I checked in the poll. I can even see how mushrooms might be socially acceptable to some folks too.

    But whoever checked their approval for cocaine, meth and opiates don't have a brain in their head, in my opinion. Pure poison. We might as well sanctify russian roulette as a recreational past time. Unbelievable.

    You pretty much described zymurgy.

    Can you make aspirin cheaper than you can buy in the store?
    does aspirin create 7 parts toxic waste for every 1 part aspirin created? If so, I probably could make it cheaper so long as I just dump the waste down a drain.

    You are ignoring the realities of mass produced goods. Meth can be produced legitimately, sold at profit with high government taxes, and still be much cheaper than anything available today.
    you keep saying mass produced but demand will dry up when other drugs are legal. Do you envision advertising meth and doing special giveaways to increase demand just so it becomes profitable to produce in mass?

    Who cares if it is pure poison? If you do not want to die, do not take it. It is really that simple.

    What exactly will cause consumption of cocaine, meth, and opiates to increase if they are legalized? Everybody I used to know who did those drugs had an absolutely endless supply through thier connections. That stuff is pouring over the Mexican border.

    So if drug users can get as much as they want anytime, how is legalizing it going to make it more available? There is no such thing as even more completely available.

    The fact that the drug is available and not illegal. Contrary to what you may think, drugs being illegal does deter people from using them... and if it doesn't, the law will eventually find them. They may have an endless supply, but there is a very scant chance that they can sustain their habit without being caught by law enforcement.

    The amount the drug is used, both by people who already use it and those who pick it up because it is legalized, will make it abundantly more available. Its nonsense to think that legalizing a drug will not have any effect on its availability. Really, I know plenty of people who would pick it up because they knew they had no risk with the law.

    Its really not that simple. Not everyone is educated on the effects of such harmful substances... Those who are and choose to use it are a harm to society, and allowing them to use such substances is a harm to everyone around them.

    And so we arrest them and they go to jail only to end up being able to get their hands on drugs and they are using all over again.

    Lets not forget that they are in JAIL. A place of punishment that is supposed to be so secure that not even drugs can get in but they do and you can get them very easily in jail.

    I picked them all. I do not make the choices for your body and nor should the government. I make those choices for my body and not the government. I own my body; you do not own my body and neither does the government.
