Some of my thoughts about that are: most benzos are older and generic thus aren't making anybody any money when they are prescribed. Even the brand name versions of most - well, Xanax extended release is new so it's an exception - are not as costly to the consumer as the newer meds, therefore, decreased profit.
I know there are other more complicated reasons but I can't help thinking money is at least a small factor.
