Cranking it out

In other countries they make crank,
But we're too deeply ignorant.
They make it in the kitchen sink,
Stoutly endure the hellish stink,
To get a high that's very cheap.

It seems that they know chemistry,
But Britons find that far too deep,
So we pay loads for what's nearly free
In cultured lands across the sea.

Abusing crank makes your teeth fall out,
And puts your overall health in doubt,
So maybe our stupidity
Turns out, in practice, luckily.
Crank is a slang term for methamphetamine, a.k.a. crystal meth, clear, glass etc.
I read on the BBC website that we alone don't have a problem with it, because it
is very expensive here. They suggested  this was due to unavailability of the 
chemicals. Yeah, that'll be right. You can't get chemicals in Britain.
I am advancing an alternative theory. Science and engineering are in sad 
decline in this country. Usually it's tragic, but not in this instance.
