You exaggerate. The probability of finding at least 1 molecule of an active agent in a small homeopathic bottle is 10^n where n is in the dozens, whereas the probability of winning 52 consecutive jackpots is 10^n where n is in the hundreds. On the other hand, if you're talking about enough molecules to in any way make a difference, good or bad, then I expect that you're correct.
