I would like to discuss why at the time of prohibition, it took the 18th amendment to the Constitution to ban alcohol. However, just a few years later and to this day, no such amendment was deemed necessary to ban drecreational drugs.

It's funny that you still think the Constitution is important. It's only a few years away from being a complete non-factor in American law. Soon members of the SCOTUS are going to cite international rulings and "societal norms." The Constitution will be a secondary concern.

I don't think the constitution has been a factor in anything since FDR loaded up the court with a bunch of his cronies so he could get away with anything he liked. Since then Americans themselves haven't given a wit about the constitution.

And when "The People" don't care about something, neither do the politicians in the legislative and executive branches. End result is everyone does what they want. Every "Crisis" involving "the children" or "public safety" is going to take precedence over that piece of paper written so long ago you and I revere.
