How are laws against consensual crimes, drugs, prostitution etc Constitutional?
Why do we give them that kind of power?
Crimes, drugs, violence and prostitution are all deemed crimes against society and the common wealth has nothing to do with government power.

consensual crimes? Not really sure tho. I see your point. BUT as far as the drugs...you could hurt other people while you are "impaired". But then the same can be said for alcohol. lol...kind of a wishy washy answer...in my defense my allergies have slowed me down!

A lot of the laws you are talking about are on the state level and therefore aren't uncostitutional.
Many states have passed laws legalizing marijuana for medical and recreational use but the Feds bust people anyways. Drug laws ARE federal. And as Stacy said, states cannot pass laws that are unconstitutional, at least they aren't supposed to be able to.
