Default Re: No more rights.

Actually, most of the rights in the constitution are still protected.

There are a number of reasons drugs are illegal. Some of them are political (marijuana), others are illegal for more pragmatic reasons (hard drugs).

Hypothetically all these laws could be changed if people cared. But they don't. At least not enough do. Social views on some things are gradually changing though.

You have to keep in mind that the average citizen doesn't know the name of their congressman. Nor in most cases their senator. Paying attention has never been humanity's forte.
