Michael Dunham's insight:

An excellent example of someone that does not understand 3D Printing, and is afraid of it.  He's worried about people "printing out sheets of Ecstasy tablets"  Sooo... where is the base material coming from?  It's not like a Star Trek piece of technology, you're not printing at a molecular level.  If people wanted to "print drugs" there are FAR eaisier/cheaper ways to produce them.  If the product is available in the base form, THAT's your problem... not 3D Printing.
