"It would be interesting to know how an effort to stop the flow of illegal drugs (meth, cocaine, heroine, etc.) would cause higher prices for "basic medicines"."

Big Stretch -- Here is one example. The safest and most effective pain medicines are opiates. The price that a consumer pays for a one month supply of morphine is about $200 plus another $100 for the piece of paper (prescription) or $3,600 per year. The cost to produce that amount of morphine is pennies, two or three dollars at most.

Currently, for most prescription drugs, the cost of the active ingredients in a pill is a tiny, tiny fraction of what the consumer is charged. The above example is typical. By the way, morphine and heroin (diacetyl-morphine) are practically the same drug.

Consumers, like all other taxpayers, are also forced to pay billions of dollars every year to pay for the drug Prohibition war.
