Ecstasy dealers are competing “like Pepsi and Coke” to sell their drug
Now, after reading this statement my first reaction was “good!”
Why? Well, if their is competition in the industry it will improve quality – ensuring that the current information problem in the market, that leads to a lower quality and possibly more damaging product, are being circumvented by the competitive process!
Of course, the article doesn’t take this tack. It says something about blah blah blah, people are taking drugs, blah blah blah, drugs are bad, blah blah blah, talking about drugs is immoral, blah – I don’t know, I sort of got bored of the article once I realised it was talking a load of sh*t.
So, in conclusion, competition for the provision of drugs is good – long live sites where people can compare experiences and provide information for future potential drug takers, so that they are fully informed and can make a sensible decision. Furthermore, long live competition in the industry – ensuring that we get a more efficient allocation of drugs in society.
