their numbers are out, B103 or $3 a pill isn't going to cut it in Klong Toey slums. $2 max.

The damage this stuff does is completely exaggerated. 

If they legalized supply and made it in legit labs, it would be a boon to humanity, and bring in much needed revenue.

As it is we trudge down this lose-lose path of drug harm lies, as the gangs on both sides of the law build empires, thank you President Nixon!

I hope her bub has a brighter future than the one she faces.

I agree with you in principle for most drugs.. but meth is a pretty nasty drug. I doubt it's existence makes anyone's life better. They should definitely decriminalize use though, so those addicted on it can look for help without fears of getting arrested.

And with other drugs legalized and cheaper, they wouldn't need meth anyway ... true, meth is evil incarnate ...

The pills (ya ba) are significantly less potent than crystal (ya ice).

 

Alcohol is pretty nasty too, and addiction/alcoholism is the same malady in terms of percentage of population impact, regardless of the substance. 

 

If we decrim use, it's only logical to decrim distribution, so people can get it without impurities, from pharmacies, along with pharmaceutical advice on how to safely dose and consume it, there are about 5 ways, Each have varying degrees of harm reduction, and effect.

 

It does need to be treated with respect, hence a trained pharmacist would be a better instructor than a street-educated and often tweaked wingman or woman. Removing the "naughty" factor from almost anything, almost always reduces the inclination to consider introductory use, another paradox the drug warriors can't bear to consider. It messes up their neat narrative!

 

Some armed forces still have controlled access to it in "mission critical" doses.

And since it's still a criminally marketed substance, I'd suggest the curious seek less riskier alternatives such as isobutyl nitrite of even pure cocaine, unfortunately, they're illicit recreationally too! They once were not of course, and the world didn't fall apart.

Ah the tangled webs we weave, trying to be thy brothers keeper!

While I agree with you that the fun-police criminalisation of less harmful Cocaine spurred the now unstoppable rise of meth, a substance cannot carry a morality rating such as "evil".

Statements like that are unhelpful and sensationalist.

What is evil, is kidding ourselves the war on drugs is helping anybody but the truly evil people that operate on both sides of the law.

 

All substances require a significant commitment by any fairly balanced individual before dependency occurs. Any smoker will tell you how they had to fight nausea when starting out, yet peer pressure kept them at it till they were hooked! Nicotine is insanely addictive, and yet its hard work to get there! 

 

The drug war heroes also rather we didn't know that the great majority of addicts are not a subset of the criminal class. Rather, a great many are former child abuse victims, some are adults caught in bleak and hopeless lives for various reasons, or veterans self-medicating their trauma. We currently send these damaged people, these non-violent substance users, to crime university a.k.a jail, then wonder why crime is off the charts! What options do they have when they get out? Can't get a job even if they want one, not with a drug conviction! 

 

But mostly, the prohibitionistas hate that secretly hundreds of millions of solvent suburban people just do drugs because they're fun -and even better paired with sex!

 

Addictive personalities do tend to bond faster to meth, and a first time user overdoing meth could well alter their dopamine levels to a dangerous degree, not to mention risk of stroke and heart failure.

 

But before you cry "gotcha!" a responsible dose would be as risky as a measured shot of whiskey, and like whiskey, no more than that! The same risks are present for a first time alcohol user, youths have dropped dead after their first booze binge -enough of them for every one of us to recall reading about such a case after a stag night or coming of age birthday gone wrong, yet there's no moral panic, with the media calling for vodka bans, and jail terms for brewers.

 

But, since adults are going to use substances, now and forever, for reasons that frankly are nobody else's business, these risks are best reduced by legalization and education as prohibition fails at every level.

Thank you for the lesson.
