Time to repeal Prohibition?

75 years ago today, Prohibition (of Alcohol) ended in the US. Prohibition was started with one Constitutional Amendment (the 18th), and ended with another (th 21st).

Which Constitutional Amendment permitted the War on Drugs?

My two favorite drugs are caffeine and sugar (happily both are currently legal). I've never taken an illegal drug, and I doubt I ever will (even if they become legal). But the War on Drugs is an idiotic failure, as harmful to our society as Prohibition was. Can we please just call it quits?

FDA, DEA delenda est!

As much as we disagree on some issues, I'm completely with you on this one. I've long wondered how alcohol prohibition took a constitutional amendment, yet we had the War on Drugs foisted upon us without one.
