The 21st amendment reversed the 18th amendment. What amendment would your suggested amendment be repealing?
Seriously, are you suggesting that we pass an amendment removing a power of the (federal) govt. when that power isn't even enumerated in the first place? Have you any idea how dangerous of a precedent that would be?

None. Who says an amendment has to repeal another amendment?

But if we're going to turn a power like drug legalization over to the states, I believe all states should have a say so in that decision. Think of the impact of state drug legalization on the surrounding states who choose not to.

State alcohol legaization worked only because all states legalized. That would not happen with drugs.
