Not really if it's a product that's actively harming our national security and the psychology of millions of Americans through addiction.

Would you say the same thing about the Qing Empire attempting to ban opium from the UK in the 1800s? I don't think it's unreasonable at all for harmful products to be banned regardless of if people here are able to convince themselves that their FYP is bringing immense happiness to their lives. The modern "Opium of the people" is TikTok.
