This is the bottom line. Its all about the money. Though there are some exceptions. I know a very rich guy that brought kilo's of mimosa
hostilis rootbark and just gave out DMT
to loads of people, the whole city was swimming with the stuff for weeks. When he stopped giving it out for free though, someone caught on and started selling it to the people who had become aware of it. Money and greed always takes over after a while. Its called capitalism.
I often think that if I was one of the many suppliers selling kilo's of research chemicals
, such as mephedrone
, to people, would an incident like the recent death caused by meph make me stop selling it? It would in my case for sure, but then again I wouldn't be selling RC's to people in the first place.
Even if there were a whole bunch of deaths from a substance, if theres a market people will sell it. Just look at the more 'dangerous' drugs
like crystal meth
, etc, if people want them, theres always going to be people wanting to make money from them. Same for any research chemical
. If theres a desire for a drug
, theres gonna be someone selling it somewhere to make a buck. Its not really evil, or immoral, in my opinion; its called business. The same as any other business that makes profit.
Whether business itself is evil and immoral is however another question thats up for you to decide. I personally agree with Noam Chomsky
on this one (he has some very good ideas about the errors in capitalism and monetary systems), business and corporations are inherently monsterous, in-humain and evil entities. Not just RC vendors, all greed driven business.
