Actually, their constitutional authority to exist is that the Executive Branch calls them into existence to execute the provisions of laws passed by the Legislative branch.

It took a constitutional amendment to ban alcohol, and that amendment has been repealed. This leaves no authority for any branch of the government to prohibit the manufacture, sale, or use of any drug. Any act of the congress that purports to do so is not a law at all, it is as James Madison would describe it, a usurpation.

What really killed it:

Hey developers - ya know that really cool language we made called C#? Well use it to develop really cool Silverlight apps that will run natively in any browser or on our phone! Go to it!!! ... 2 years later ...

Woops! Hey now developers... you know how we said to invest all your time and development strategies behind Silverlight? Yeah well now we're going to deprecate it and we're replacing it with C++/Metro/Windows Store. There is no migration path. So, you know, go to it!!!
