Legalization vs. decriminalization = semantics

All that matters is the letter of the law.

What should be argued/discussed is the exact wording of any legislation that will "legalize"/"decriminalize" the use of the cannabis plant.

Arguing over 'legalization' vs. 'decriminalization' is mental masturbation.

The government, and the law exist, despite certain individuals greater political world-view. I agree that the drug-war, especially cannabis prohibition is unconstitutional. Congress, the courts, cops, and DEA thugs with guns disagree. Good luck arguing with them. The goal now is to get the laws changed.
