The bans are causing this. The ban on the "real stuff" caused the synthetic stuff to come to prominence. The bans on some of that crud led to the creation of these new, ever more dangerous variations. It's logical, Mr. Grassley from Iowa, to introduce ever MORE bans, right? They have been so effective!
Mr. Grassley has been one of prohibition's most staunch supporters in Congress. When all things point to the utter failures of these bans, as we see highlighted by this "article," (propaganda piece, once again, from the AP) why do they continue down the same path? One can only determine that somehow, someway, the stated goals of prohibition are different than that of public safety. There can be no other reason to continue these failed policies unless they are serving those who benefit from these laws exactly as intended. With the "analogue" laws in effect, our government can prosecute when they want, who they want, no matter if the drugs aren't even technically "illegal."
Prohibition has utterly failed. Demand reform! This is ridiculous!
