The claim is that the number of users of currently illicit narcotics will skyrocket if it is legalized and the price drops. The rate of usage of inhalants, which are legal to attain and very cheap, is very low--lower, in fact, than the rate of heroin use. If the claim were true, we would see very high usage of inhalants. But we do not. So there is simply no reason to believe the claims. People aren't avoiding heroin usage because it's expensive. They're avoiding it because it's stupid.
