Substance User’s Bill of Rights

Substance Users’ Bill of Rights

We are the sovereign owners of our own brains and bodies and we have the right to alter our consciousness using whatever means we choose: ranging from drugs and alcohol to meditation and religion.

This is nothing inherently diseased or immoral in recreational substance use so long as steps are taken to insure that there is no harm to others.

We are equal human beings and the government has no more right to imprison us or otherwise infringe on our constitutional rights based on our choice of recreational alteration of consciousness than it does to imprison people based on race, color, creed or sexual preference.

The Tenth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States says: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” All federal drug laws are unconstitutional.
