Anybody that thinks talking about the Constitution is farting isn’t a conservative. If actual conservatives actually took over they’d point out that the drug war is not only a massive fiscal failure but a complete and total raping of the Constitution and end it in a cold second.
At one time Americans understood the limitations imposed upon the federal government. The ratification of the 18th Amendment shows that the people understood that the federal government had no authority whatsoever to prohibit alcohol without going through the lengthy process of actually amending the Constitution.
Now, the “socons” are fine ignoring the Constitution and expanding the role of the federal government beyond its limits when it suits their purpose. Who else does this? Democrats. No difference between them, really. They just want to ignore the Constitution for different reasons, each side advancing their own moral/immoral agenda, the law be damned.
You want to give the federal government the power to ban a funny looking weed? Amend the Constitution so that We the People grant that power to the federal government. Eventually you will learn that even a Constituitonal Amendment will not change the habits and behaviors of people — how is that Prohibition thing working out these days?
