Denny, the hole in that argument is that crystal meth didn't exist before The War On Drugs. Where did it come from? Can the Drug War that created it really be expected to solve the problem? By what mechanism?
Desoxyn is the brand name that d-Methamphetamine hydrochloride is sold under. Methamphetamine has been around since 1919 and Desoxyn has been around since the 1940's. The drug wasn't invented because of the drug war, only the techniques used to synthasize it illegally were.
