Also just because there are LSD lab busts doesn't mean there aren't many others spread across the world producing this magical goodness. Obviously we can't find out how many producer there are, but I'm sure one lab isn't going to do shit to the market considering how many sheets of acid you can lay from one synthesis.
i bet the drop in availability after the Pickard bust had as much to do with him not being around as it did with other cooks taking a little hiatus while the heat settled.
Just because there was a 90% drop doesnt mean he was producing 90% of the LSD.
And since ~04 availability has been growing with each year.
But that isn't really true because if you look at the Pickard case.
"According to court testimony, they would produce a kilogram of LSD approximately every 5 weeks. The government contends following their arrest there was a 90% drop in the availability of LSD worldwide."
So your little assumption isn't really something to count on.
But sure most may labs not make those amounts but don't think that it's impossible.
i think the inflation in the price of LSD is just a reflection on the inflation everywhere else.
While people could have made decent money selling sheets for a hundred 10-20 years ago thats not the case anymore.
A 10 strip is not that expensive today, and worth every penny
I dunno, $100 for a ten strip just makes me cringe, for maybe 1mg of the desired chemical if you're lucky... and I'd be inclined to agree, but i'm still paying the same prices for reefer as I was back then, and still being offered pressed pills at the same price or cheaper (i very rarely purchase those).
