    The government had no legal right to ever ban drugs in the first place.  It's none of the government's damn business to tell consenting adults what they can and cannot do with their bodies.

    In a sane world, all drug laws would have been ruled unconstitutional decades ago.

    Not only that, I submit that all drug bans have only made the problem worse.  Caused an extremely violent black market to exist, caused even more harmful drugs like Meth to be cooked up.

    Not only would I give reparations to everyone jailed for drugs, I'd give reparations to everyone who had a parent or child killed by gang violence, which is near 100% fueled by the drug trade.
