They said the same thing about alcohol....weed.
Illegal drugs create jobs for runners and dealers....but there's a lot of bribework involved, and people profit that way.
Legal drugs provide numerous jobs, from factory workers, to information analysts, to office workers to quality inspectors to maintenance workers to computer programmers to delivery drivers and so on....AND assists jobs in other facets, like pharmacists and insurance companies.
Pharmaceutical companies may very well be biggest crooks on the planet. God gave all of us the herbs on earth for our benefit and THEY took control of them and call everybody else criminals unless we PAY THEM AND OUR LAWMAKERS MADE IT ALL POSSIBLE. America is not the land of the free.
oh yes and all the rehab personal ... Drugs are a huge tax grab for the government both legal and illegal
