It should not be against the law.

When alcohol was against the law, many people still drank, and the black
market booze industry resulted in societal harms that were never envisioned
by prohibitionists.

The current prohibitions cause the same societal harms.

It is better for society to not ban these substances and to deal only with
the harm caused by the minority of users rather than trying to force everyone
into a narrow moral framework and having to deal with the greater harm caused
by the black market that prohibition fuels.
