Report: Drugs Cheaper, Stronger Thanks to War on Drugs

Must be a generational thing

The war on drugs is a generational thing. Children of the 1980s know no other reality than D.A.R.E. class and “Just Say No,” while their parents can still recall — though barely — an age when researchers in Menlo Park literally handed out LSD to (eager) study participants.

But a funny thing happened on the way to just saying no: since 1990, readily-available cocaine, heroin and marijuana has become cheaper — which suggests an overflow of supply, as there's no indication that demand has lessened — while also becoming stronger and purer, a new study says.

Millennials really are spoiled.
