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It took a constitutional amendment to ban alcohol, and that amendment has been repealed.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.

Never heard of it until last night. Had insomnia, it's on at 2 AM. Something about a chicken egg and tricking people into thinking it was a real egg. Funny as hell.

Aired in 1954, 4 years before I was born.

I think the CBC or CTV rebroadcast that back in the 1980s after midnight.

Not sure which.
