Inalienable rights are just that, guaranteed by nature.
I'm not sure I agree with you here. I guess society rejects illicit substances, but there is definitely a reason for this, and it is not all of society or even close by any means.
I think it is illegal more because the federal government telling us what is good for us, producing propaganda and stigmatizing these things. (again, alcohol is worse then many of these illicit drugs, but still legal)
13 states have legalized the medical use of one of these substances, through ballot measures. California has now legalized it completely. 'Society' in all of these states voted for it.
Now, the federal ban, kosher? I hardly think that is the will of society as a whole. States rights!
In fact I said it was the responsibility of all members of society to follow society's laws.

Cut the head off the snake and legalize drugs.
Yes because legalizing Cocaine which in turn is used to make Crack will solve all of our problems.
While were at it lets legalize Heroin to stop warlords in Afghanistan.
G-d forbid we actually try enforcing the law and blow the snake's head off.

I think the words that are going to come out of his mouth when he revels his plan will be something along the lines of, "we need to renew and make permanent assault weapons ban" or something along those lines. The his approval rating is going to drop to right over 50%.
Investigators say nine out of 10 guns retrieved from crime scenes south of the border are traced back to U.S. gun dealers.
Yes, this is saying that the US gun dealers are a problem. Just look at the numbers 9 out of 10 are weapons from America.
Anyway you slice it they are gunning for our rights.
Edit to add -
The Arizona Gun Store owner that was arrested and charged with selling guns to the Mexican Drug cartels, the judge in his case issued a direct verdict of Not Guilty.
Story Is Here
It is very easy to tell what is going to happen if Obama and Co. get up there and start talking about taking away our rights.
