Some people may say that this actually happens as part of a bigger conspiracy of releasing drugs into the market, creating a dependency on them (a hungry market), and start massively producing them without a further and conclusive test. From there the big guys just have to start counting the profit they’re making every year.
Applying some logic to this situation it seems very reasonable and very sinister from the financial perspective of a looking it as a business. And while at a certain level could be true, most of us cannot prove it. (That’s why it’s been called a conspiracy).
