Which is why we often need government regulation. One only needs to watch the show Breaking Bad or Scarface to see what business is like with no regulation (ironically as a result of a blanket ban). Market forces (other than maybe in the arms market) don't work worth a damn without at least some government as shown in places like Somalia or Kashmir.
