I was talking to a drug using friend, a man with alot of miles on his frequent higher card, about the latest craze on drugs, this time Mexican bordertown slaughter, and he reminded me that the drug cartels are totally opposed to legalization, like the US government. And that was a good thing. They had common interest and should work together to preserve the status quo. He pointed out that should drugs be made legal, the quality would go down and he would be forced to buy more quantity just to get a decent buzz. He was very concerned that cocaine would be reduced to nothing more than a mild salt, and weed would be un-organic and taste like Budweiser. Indeed, after Prohibition was lifted, the US government forced the beer companies to make weak beer with a taste that resembled the licking of a shoe sole after a day walking around a chicken coop. The six pack was born, then the twelve pack but it was never enough. Liver disease rose as gallons of crap beer flooded in. So my friend has a point. Legalizing drugs will cut the quality and increase volume useage, weighing down the seeker, prompting more Icarus type falls.
