That is of course true, but have you ever asked yourself why it is true? If
Merck and Lilly get into a dispute over the distribution of their pain
killers they can ask the courts to settle the dispute, and if necessary have
the police enforce the decision; If the Medellin cartel has a dispute with
the Cali cartel over the distribution of their pain killers the only way to
settle the matter is a shotgun blast to the face. If candy bars were illegal
then working for the Hershey or Mars candy company would be as dangerous
as that of any street drug pusher.
