Price Comparison Between UGL's and Homebrew


#1

I recently came to discover the world of homebrewing. Below I have a comparison between a popular UGL brand from the US and the prices from a decent raw supplier within the EU (still chinese raws).

(UGL) 20 Tablets of 25mg Aromasin = 29$
(RAW) 10g of Aromasin (10.000mg) = 150$
(RAW) 20 Servings in a Liquid Suspension = 7.5$
(RAW~50%) 20 Servings in a Liquid Suspension = 15$

Of course the raws have some misc expenses from 190 proof ethanol/PEG 300 but these tend to be cheap as dirt. Even if the purity is ~50%, it still works out as a much better value for money! Let's look at cialis:

Cialis 10g
(UGL) 30 Tablets of Cialis 40mg = 28$
(RAW) 10g of Cialis (10.000mg) = 50$
(RAW) 30 Servings in a Liquid Suspension = 6$
RAW~50%) 30 Servings in a Liquid Suspension = 12$

I won't go into any oral aas because I think I have proven my point. Any I missing something here? How is it possible that raws are dirt cheap and people still buy overpriced stuff from UGL's? Convenience factor also plays an important role but at this price range any comparison to UGL's seem unnecessary.

not everyone wants to go through to hassle of brewing, and if you get busted with loads of powder it makes it look like you’re selling the shit which’ll land you in a world of inconvenience.

the second point is pretty damn serious. If a person goes to a ugl, they can buy exactly what they need, and they can make sure that they keep it down to an amount that falls under personal consumption, as far local laws are concerned. If a court finds you in possession with intent to distribute , which in most cases is determined simply by the amount you’re in possession of, penalties increase exponentially, and almost certainly include time behind bars. I’d say for most people, the higher price tag is well worth avoiding this.

I am speaking in terms of US laws, but I know a lot of countries are similar.

well, look at people that use meth. it’s way cheaper to make it and actually easier to acquire it by making your own, but most people just buy it from someone.

the difference is about 20 years prison time or maybe getting off with probation and a fine.
