I had a really crass name for it to make the point, trying for a solid decade to bring so much attention to it that I thought for sure I could kill it. And there were moments when I thought I had, but finally, for me, reality set it in and I gave up the fight because as with all rackets, it’s not the producers or the dealers that keep it going.

It’s the market demand.
