Cocaine entering the USA accounted for 80 billion dollars and 4000 tons of the white powder last year. Methamphetaime use was 2,835 tons last year or about 60 Billion dollars Pot use is 25 tons in the USA or about 35 billion dollars a year. Combined that is 175 billion dollar industry. Research Chemicals are such a small % of overall drug use, the USA goverment does not even bother estimating the amount of Research Chemicals coming into this country. I would venture to say it is under $1 million dollars. So why is the DEA wasting their time having businesses research whether of not shulgin's chemical compound is used in their manufacturing process. Why classify them as CSAa if there are just a few isolated cases of teenagers taking to much. It just seems like a lot of work, a big hassle for businesses, the entire CSA list revised just to keep the compound out of the hands of about 1,000 people. Whereas research chemicals amount to maybe a million dollar business (.005% of drugs used)- coke is 80 billion dollar business, meth is a 60 billion dollar business and pot is a 35 billion dollar business. So swim can't figure out if the DEA is just stupid, or it doesn't see the big picture. Just looking at these numbers shows you the DEA is stupid allocating resources on a very small bit of the drug trade and not using the money elsewhere. Research Chemicals for the most part are not addictive, Coke and Meth are though. WHat should the DEA be focused on? No, I don't believe a person should be jailed for a small quantity of drugs, but I am amazed by how the DEA splits up its work load to be the most efficient. DEA - Leave Research Chemicals alone! They are not a threat to the american society.
