What if a new law were enacted stating: all unknown, unidentified and uncertified substances are banned?
As I said - it would mean that the big pharmaceutical companies would have complete and total domination over the Polish market. Is that what you want?
There are rules regulating what food, medicaments and other products can be marketed, so designer drugs in your view should be exempt?
There aren't rules - you can more or less do what you want, hence why people sell exotic things such as kangaroo and so on. Remember, technically, these drugs are just food products, nothing more.
Testing is pricey and that's very good. The petitioner would have to pay for the test whether or not he got permission to market the item, and that would also be a deterrent to many.
So you want to completely remove Polish businesses from the market, then?
Let's talk supplements. There are quite a few Polish companies that produce and deal with them - but they don't have huge budgets. Paying to test them would be very expensive, meaning that only the big name American companies could probably afford to put them on the Polish market. The Polish producers would go out of business, and Poles would be reduced to being "wage slaves" as you put it in the past.
It's just not so simple to do what you propose.
Re online sales, sting operations would pluck out individual dealers who would be given a choice: jail or cooperation with law enforcement (disclosing their source)? The same at clubs, pubs, discos, etc.
As far as I'm aware, plea bargains aren't legal in Poland.
But yes, the second idea when it comes to harder drugs is certainly the way forward. There's a good argument for not even fining or prosecuting those with small amounts if they're willing to disclose the source of the drugs.
Where there's a will, there's a way. Remember, Csapone was unpersecutable although he had many corpses on his hands. He could buy prosecutors, judges, police, alibis, whatever, so they got him on tax evasion.
This is why the Health Ministry was involved with busting the shops a while ago, because the alternative legal route wasn't very clear.
Some of you on PF seem to be siding with the criminals and finding excuses to show why they cannot be touched. It figures, you support the crooked and scammy PO.
No, we just know that there's no point using a sledgehammer to crack a nut. Your solution guarantees job losses in Poland, and there's no easy fix for the legal situation. Remember, the UK is also struggling to deal with it - it's a worldwide problem.
Remember, these aren't drugs in the strict sense of the word. They're food products that contain man-made chemical substances. The only real way to deal with this is to make it thoroughly unattractive to take them - which means making it clear that there's no NFZ care for someone poisoned with drugs. Someone might just think twice if they know that adverse reactions won't be treated.
