Sometimes it is, actually. Unfortunately, for me, there is no difference between 1 and 8 ibuprofen or aspirin -- NONE OF THEM WORK.

And medical incompetence/error is a major cause of death in the US.

But from currently illegal drugs? You'll have to prove it, and I don't
think you can.

I don't think that would be very difficult.  Many of the deaths that are
just counted as 'gun deaths' go back to illegal drugs, either deals,
dealers (who don't get paid), or impurities that cause unexpected effects.

I think the object is to remove the criminal element. I'm pretty sure that Pfizer and Novartis aren't going to get into shooting wars over turf.
