I was bringing up the question for Will of whether he felt that since 
his position is that crack should be banned as implicitly dangerous, 
therefore cocaine should be as well. Not because it was a behavioral 
precursor but because it's a *chemical precursor*. That is, you start 
with cocaine to make crack.

         cocaine + baking soda => crack + water + carbon dioxide + salt
