"I dont understand the comparison between an illegal drug pusher and a pharmacuetical company."

It is very easy. This country was founded on the principle of individual freedom and personal responsibility. Freedom includes the right to earn a living in a free market. Free enterprise or economic freedom means that individuals have a fundamental right to buy, sell, trade, hire, fire, or whatever according to the two simple rules of the free market which are no force and no fraud.

Freedom means that all economic exchanges are voluntary associations. No one may be forced to buy, sell, or consume. And, no one has the right to stand between a willing buyer and a willing seller. Freedom means that you have the right to buy drugs or any other commodity from whoever you want as long as they are willing to sell at an agreed upon price. It means that no one can force you to do business with someone whom you do not want to do business with.

Freedom means that no one has the right to illegalize drugs. Certainly, no one has the right to illegalize medicinal plants or plant extracts. Green plants are part of natures bounty. No one may claim to own all plants. It would be like some idiot proclaiming that he owns all the oak trees in the world just like some idiot prohibitionists do today with other plants. The people who own plants are those who own the land where they grow. Freedom means that farmers and gardeners can grow whatever they want without getting permission from any third party.

Freedom means that there is no such thing as an "illegal drug pusher". Freedom means that honest trade is legal. Freedom means that anyone may honestly and freely compete with any pharmacuetical company or any other company.

Freedom means that no one has the right to murder, assault, rob, and arrest peaceful people who are minding their own business.

Freedom means that all those who supported the war on alcohol consumers, producers, and dealers or "pushers" during that war (alcohol Prohibition) were freedom violating thugs as well as violent predators just like today's drug fighters and illegalizers. All laws that violate natural rights are void and those who support those laws are criminals. Other examples would be sex and gambling laws or the laws in Nazi Germany that illegalized Jews and their religion.

Freedom also includes the right of self-defense which means the right to buy guns and ammo so that anyone can defend themselves from violent predators. In an armed society, governments can be prevented from scapegoating and persecuting unpopular minorities such as drug wars against the young and the poor or racist wars or any other wars against freedom because the victims will arm themselves and fight back. People with access to the means of self-defense don't lick boots and don't put up with freedom-violating governments.

In the words of Thomas Jefferson, "God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion... What country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms... The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

In the words of Abraham Lincoln, "Prohibition... goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes... A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded."

I hope that this helps because I am trying to educate the public about their heritage of liberty and the principles of freedom upon which this country was founded.
