Why make supp items more expensive?

I have no idea why riot decided to make supports struggle more having to start with less potions (which affects their sustain in lane), this only benefits poking supports and makes going through level 1 to level 3/4/5 even more complicated when lanning againts a good zyra or brand, an annoying karma, or something of the sort.
