    • I'm sure everyone can buy the chemical. That's the risky part of having a very simple organic compound as a drug. The kicker with this particular drug is the chemical was known before them, so they can't protect production or sale of this chemical. It's a good business plan they have, but it's risky when the company does no R&D and the product is a chemical one can buy. It's a packaging and the use issue, not the availability of a compound. The real question you should be asking is why the Chinese even selling this thing by kgs. So there is clearly a demand, so someone is already buying it.
