Vitamins and supplements future contraband?

Is there any validity to this? these corporate fudgepackers sure don't leave any stones unturned if that's the case.

This has been an ongoing worldwide effort by certain corporations for many years, not all the active parties are mentioned in that article  :(

good!  make it all illegal.  the more it's restricted, the more underground chemists will be able to make on these items.

But what can we do?  Those who'd like to see the supplement market disappear are also those with the money, and money drives everything...

I noticed nowhere does it say growing and consuming these things yourself is illegal...  I grow my on stevia (I live in Canada, so that could be a no-no, right?), as it's superiour to any artificial sweetener I've tried (they leave a strange aftertaste which can invoke the gag reflex or can act as a laxative - stevia doesn't).

There are several others on that list that I currently use and would not give up without a fight...  if it goes underground people will get hurt, simple as that.  Look at the currently illegal drugs, back-alley abortions, etc.  Legislation never stops anything that people want to do, just generates more profit for those who already have too much, it seems...
