A decade ago, $300 was a decent price, but $350-$400 was not uncommon. $250 was about the bottom $ on an ounce. Factor in inflation and $400 an ounce today isn't that ridiculous.

You're doing one of two things, you're either making it up or you're cherry-picking one asinine argument out of a sea of good ones.

I've never seen anyone say that it would cause prices to drop.

What I have seen are a bunch of jackasses making straw-man arguments like the one in your first post.

There have been numerous threads on the O-T and the Poli Board where the drug users have repeatedly claimed legalization would bring down the cost of illegal drugs. Those were not isolated posts.
