  1. Not only did this law enable capricious law making, but also enabled retroactive law making. That is, outlawing what one already has legal possession of. Imagine the tyranny, government, can on a whim outlaw all blue cars. You and your blue car are now criminal though you had no intent (another legal concept) to break the law, as no such law existed at the time you acquired your blue car.

Of course consumption would be super dangerous, but drugs usually are dangerous.
