    >weird and goofy
    It isn't weird at all. The opposite of what you stated is often as it appears which is why this incident stands out to you. There will be unscrupulous companies attempting to use marketing and packaging to make you believe you are buying a superior product, and there are companies who stick to simple packaging and actually supply the superior product for a better price. This is called advertising and marketing. It exists in every country. And it always will.

        No I get that you're a schizo, what I want to know is what the generic version being more natural (story is made up btw because it's always the opposite in real life) has to do with anything.

        Because the way the OP is worded makes it sound like the problem is there's no law requiring fancy natural products to have fancy packaging so that morons don't have to read an ingredient list.

        If the poison is labeled as poison why can't you simply not buy the poison?

          Because the poison shouldn't be there in the first place. Food shopping should not be a minefield of trans fats, seed oils and corn syrup. Obesity is like 40% of the population now, that's normal?

            We should clearly punish the other 60% because that 40% has no self control.

        >ban poison
        Lol. Let me tell you a story about mushrooms. Psychedelic mushrooms of the psilocybin variety are illegal in the US. Yep. Illegal. Schedule I bad bois. You know what isn't? Amanita muscaria. Why? It got classed into the Amanita family of mushrooms. It's similar but unlike amanitas it isn't very deadly. It's a GABAergic somewhat deliriant at high doses but otherwise somewhat hallucinogenic. The amanita muscaria is for all practical purposes a drug. Perfectly legal in the US. It is legal because it was misclassed as poisonous.

        Know what else? Other amanitas are perfectly legal. In fact, all incredibly deadly mushrooms are perfectly legal. That's right. You can just grow liver killers and kidney failures and heart stoppers and brain melters in your yard or garden or in a box. Very dangerous. Perfectly legal. It's legal because it is not a drug.

        So just remember that when somebody says drugs are illegal for anything related to health or public safety.

            This isn't some rare earth metal boyo. This isn't some hard to acquire radioactive substance. These are mushrooms. You grow them in poop and wood or grain in a garden. Consider hemp. Used to just grow wild all over the place. The government spent countless dollars uprooting plants across a continent. Deadly plants though? Nah that's fine. All you bro.

                You don't understand. And I'm not going to explain it to you. This is a discussion from someone's post calling action to the government to ban the distribution of poison.

                The distribution. Of poison.

                drugs can be a pipeline for some to suddenly disobey the government and see the bigger picture. poisons just kill an endanger you thats why they're legal. one can become habit forming the other is not. its all about government control.

                Yeah gee I wonder why they'd ban something that turns people into criminals. Stealing catalytic converters does not make you some sort of enlightened sage wise to the machinations of The Establishment

              Wild hemp as in an endemic American species of hemp or introduced? I’m curious, never heard of that but then again I’d never think about it. Kind of like learning about ribes berries or Kentucky bamboo.

                Not him but as far as I’m aware cannabis is native to eurasia. The stuff that grows wild in the south and parts of canada called ditch weed is cannabis ruderalis, a different subsecies than cannabis sativa and cannabis indica.

    Americanized capitalism with food since the 80s has been a shit show. It seeks to be deceptive and misguide consumers. The average american consumer does not read labels and habitually buys the same products based off branding and packaging. This is why companies frequently get away with “new and improved” formulas that lower the product quality. Also if your product comes in a mason jar with a small business style label thats like an automatic $3 upcharge even if it’s a major brand like kroger, or it’s you and you’re just repackaging something like Jif.

    Most murricans believe in the purported virtues of their food rather than the actual nutritional content. Like fair trade coffee with soy milk, a kind bar, a slice of whole grain toast, and an organic apple tart sounds like a healthier breakfast to the average murrican person than just turkey sausage, an apple, and eggs.

      Always living rent free in people's heads. As if some form of this hasn't existed. And as if it's exclusive to America. I distinctly remember Victorian England being positively notorious for food adulteration. Selling milk to mothers and children that was mostly chalk and water.

      Yet in America (and every other country) a company tells you exactly what's in the food, but puts a fancy label on it, and that's where you have a problem.

        Well yes it has always existed on some scale and always will. The problem, especially with your example and in general, is large entities usually aren’t able to get away with it to the extent they currently are. It would be considered a public health concern, or the system would allow for a new competitor to usurp them with superior quality or production. Since that isn’t the case here we’ve all kind of just accepted everyone is constantly ripping off everyone a little and the best thing to do is just be more clever. I see new names for plant oils and sugar in syrup form derived from something else suddenly start appearing on labels on a yearly basis, it’s 100% deliberate to confuse people that don’t know big words.

    Without other oil and stabilizers it's not a stable emulsion.

    It tastes better with salt and sugar.
