Your argument is flawed from

Your argument is flawed from the beginning because you create a straw man when equating rights to morals. Rights aren't based in morality. You can actually believe drugs to be immoral, but that you have a right to do them so on that one simple statement the remainder of your argument fails because it's based on a false premise.

Rights are rights because as humans we can reason to where boundaries are. For example, if you can't reason self-ownership is a natural boundary, then there's nothing wrong with slavery. If you don't believe a right to live unmolested as long as you aren't harming anyone else is also a natural boundary, then anyone can just assault anyone at any time. I can go on and on, but you get the point.

"In reality, the Constitution itself is incapable of achieving what we would like in limiting government power, no matter how well written."
