Quick libertarian note: this show extremely effectively depicts what happens when you ban a drug of any kind. It doesn't go away, instead it increases in price, becomes mixed with unknown and often dangerous impurities and the entire industry goes underground and gets handled by criminals which leads to an ever increasing cycle of violence as profit margins become larger and larger.
