Before The Drug War

Some photos of items sold over the counter before the Drug War began. Hat tip to lewrockwell.com for the heads up.

It just goes to show you, unless regulated by government, private for-profit businesses will do anything, including hook unwitting customers into a life of drug addiction.

Drug addiction is not by any rational definition "freedom."

Government regulation hasn't done a damn thing about drug addiction. Show me any non-cyclical, meaningful addiction stats that point to a statistically significant improvement directly related to government enforcement.

Even if you can't find this, look at how Portugal's heroin use rate dropped when it became non-criminal for a heroin addict to possess heroin. Government stepping aside in this matter made it easier for heroin addicts to be connected with mainstream society, allowing them to better themselves and give up the habit.

So save the tired rhetoric. We are much worse off now with base rock than we were with coca wine.
