Indubitably: Prohibition works.

Except even if blanket legalization occured tommorow, this would not stop people like this from cooking meth. If anything else, the FDA would never approve it to be an over the counter substance, and it cannot be marketed as a dietary supplement.

Pharmaceutical Grade Desoxyn, at any case, is expensive. Without insurance, you're looking at around 500-600$ a bottle.

You can cook enough meth to keep you going for a week for 50 bucks.

What does that even mean?

The reason it's so cheap to cook meth is that you're doing it with impure, readily available precurser chemicals in a method that not only adulterates the resulting product with any number of toxic, carcinogenic, and teratogenic compounds, but you have amatures who read a recipe on the internet doing so.

Even if, ignoring the fact that methamphetamine IS legal for legitimate medical uses, you were able to get blanket legalization for it's recreational use from the legal spectrum, the FDA would still be the primary determinant in the United States if it could go from being a Schedule II Prescription Substance to being an over-the-counter recreational substance. There are too many adverse effects - both short and long term, for them to do so. In addition, this is a drug which utterly destroys it's users bodies.

And since it is already considered a medication in the United States Pharmacopia, there is no way that anyone can legally sell it as a dietary aid or supplement, which is how people got away with selling chemical analogues of Mephedrone. (Vanilla Sky, K2, Spice, Synthetic Weed)

Legalize meth production commercially and you'll see a Breaking Bad style pro operation set up with enough quality product to sell it cheaper than home cooked stuff. Not a good thing, meth, but the war on drugs is more the reason it exists than anything. Who's knowingly take a dangerous thing like meth with the good shiat like coke legalized.

Indeed. Even if people still chose Meth, makers would have every reason to keep the product clean (dead customers don't make for repeat business).

Legalizing also removes a lot of the stigmas and/or legal barriers to providing effective treatment to users who wish to detox. Different types of rehab facilities could emerge, and the mere fact that one could enter without also having to admit that they are recent/current user of illegal drugs would remove some of the obstacles to people seeking treatment.

I just learned today that a guy I know just relapsed back to meth, so bad that he let producers in to his home to manufacture the shiat, and have 'allowed' him to sleep in the garage. It's farked up to think, in his mind, that meth is actually currency, and he has to put up with their shiat, but hey, he's addicted.

I prefer Adderall xr to dextroamphetamines, myself and ANYTHING over Ritalin, but neither of those are anything close to methamphetamine. Dexedrine(dextroamphetamine) is not Desoxyn(methamphetamine). They are similar though. Sort of like comparing codeine to heroin.

You don't have a very strong grasp of historical events, do you?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patent_medicine

Muckraker journalists and other investigators began to publicize instances of death, drug addiction, and other hazards from the compounds. This took some small courage on behalf of the publishing industry that circulated these claims, since the typical newspaper of the period relied heavily on the patent medicines, which founded the U.S. advertising industry. In 1905, Samuel Hopkins Adams published an exposé entitled "The Great American Fraud" in Collier's Weekly that led to the passage of the first Pure Food and Drug Act in 1906.[7] This statute did not ban the alcohol, narcotics, and stimulants in the medicines; it required them to be labeled as such, and curbed some of the more misleading, overstated, or fraudulent claims that appeared on the labels. In 1936 the statute was revised to ban them, and the United States entered a long period of ever more drastic reductions in the medications available unmediated by physicians and prescriptions. Morris Fishbein, editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association, who was active in the first half of the 20th century, based much of his career on exposing quacks and driving them out of business.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food,_Drug_and_Cosmetic_Act

The United States Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (abbreviated as FFDCA, FDCA, or FD&C), is a set of laws passed by Congress in 1938 giving authority to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to oversee the safety of food, drugs, and cosmetics. A principal author of this law was Royal S. Copeland, a three-term U.S. Senator from New York.[2] In 1968, the Electronic Product Radiation Control provisions were added to the FD&C. Also in that year the FDA formed the Drug Efficacy Study Implementation (DESI) to incorporate into FD&C regulations the recommendations from a National Academy of Sciences investigation of effectiveness of previously marketed drugs.[3] The act has been amended many times, most recently to add requirements about bioterrorism preparations.

Dexedrine is not Desoxyn. It's dextroamphetamine, which is a different form. It's harder to abuse than Desoxyn, which is pure methamphetamine.

In addition, it's a Schedule III drug, which means it has a far lower abuse and addiction potential than Desoxyn, which is Schedule II. You can't even get a refill on Desoxyn - it requires a physical script for each and every prescription, and has strict limits on the amount that can be dispensed per prescription.

I took Ritalin in high school* and it wasn't that bad at the low doses I took, although when I finally bit the bullet to go back on something last fall, it turns out I developed the 'dizzy' side effect. Doc put me on Concerta, and while at first I had major insomnia, now that I got the dose lowered, I can sleep almost a full night with no real problems from being on it that I can tell. I do get a bit of an elevated heart rate sometimes but I can deal with that for the tradeoff of not forgetting wtf I came upstairs for all the time.

Hm. I wonder if I could get the same results I have now at a reduced dose with Desoxn. I already get a written script every month as it is. I have good reults with the Dexy, but I'm always trying to scrape by on the absolute minimum. Cost is a factor as well, that's why I get 10 mg IR and then I break them up. Not as good as the ER, but less than a quarter of the price.

Naw see, those people should have pulled themselves up by their own bootstraps. A proper free society would let the invisible hand of the market cure those ills because people would simply stop using bad medicines.

It's like half the internet-going population has been so safe for so long that sticking their fingers in a light socket seems like a good, exciting idea. I'm all for legalizing marijuana because it has potential medical uses and isn't any worse than what's already legal. But the, "it doesn't work" line doesn't work. Speeding is against the law, people still speed, we should do away with speed limits? I think no.

Make all this crap as cheap and as easy to get as booze. Nobody robbed a house to support their beer habit. Prohibition is so farking stupid. When people could roll down to the pharmacy to get real Coca Cola and Dr. Ribbie's Toothache Salve with real cocaine, nobody was smoking crack. Prohibition forced people to invent crack. In the 20s and 30s, unless you brewed your own beer, you weren't getting it. Whiskey? No problem. Who the fark would bother to smuggle beer. Small, potent quantities are where it's at.

Ritalin makes me squirrel as well. That includes Concerta as well. Straight dex was OK at first but I felt pretty ate up by the end of the day. I prefer the smooth ride of Adderall XR for my adhd meds.

Then I tried snorting Meth and it was pretty much over from there. I with I had never tried that crap. Adderall and dex never made me think there were people living in my attic. I don't even have an attic.

I would never ever support the legalization of meth, having used it for 3 years. It is the most horrible, life-sucking drug out there and meth dealers and makers should all be shot.

That said, everyone who uses it needs to be tested immediately for bipolar disorder. Easy way to tell: If you can take meth (or indeed any speed-type drug) and then sleep, you're probably using it as a mood stabilizer. It was when a psychiatrist told me that that I first got on a med cocktail that started working for me.

Addiction to patent medications which contained substances like codiene, opium, morphine, heroin, and cocaine was a major issue in the Patent Medication Era and in the days before the Pure food and Drug Act of 1906, and the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of 1939 which gave the FDA Teeth in regulating the prescribing of these substances. People were dying in droves thanks to these substances which were legally portrayed as harmless, and capable of curative properties they did not possess.

schubie: Prohibition forced people to invent crack.

Bullshiat. Crack was invented because you could sell a more addictive form of cocaine, with less purity, for a reduced cost and inflated profit to the seller. In addition, you could adulterate it and cut it with whatever you wanted to as long as it would still form the rocks.

schubie: In the 20s and 30s, unless you brewed your own beer, you weren't getting it.

Uh, actually that's completely incorrect.

Schlitz, Blatz, Pabst, and Anheuser-Busch were all granted licenses by the US Government to produce "medicinal beer". In addition, they continued producing beer which had an alcohol content of 0.5% by volume, called near beer.

I didn't say they were safe but I bet a crack addict would be happy to down shift their habit with a real coke in the morning. Are people not dying now from the drugs + the crime that the black market creates? What's a drug dealer going to do to someone who rips them off? Call the cops on them or shoot them in the head?

My grandpa, who lived through prohibition, said it was almost impossible to get a beer. You could find gin and rye with little problem but beer, since it was hard to smuggle and even harder to get drunk on, wasn't desirable for bootleggers to deal with. The first day after prohibition was overturned he had his first real beer in years. I'm going to trust his observations.

Prohibition. It didn't work then, it's not working now.

Gyrfalcon: I would never ever support the legalization of meth, having used it for 3 years. It is the most horrible, life-sucking drug out there and meth dealers and makers should all be shot.

That said, everyone who uses it needs to be tested immediately for bipolar disorder. Easy way to tell: If you can take meth (or indeed any speed-type drug) and then sleep, you're probably using it as a mood stabilizer. It was when a psychiatrist told me that that I first got on a med cocktail that started working for me.


This...I'm a recovering Meth/coke/benzo/opiate addict an am now on a Med cocktail that seems to be working. However I was using stimulants to counter my depression and sedatives to counter my mania.
