Do NOT decriminalize cannabis…

Comment 12th July 2010


It is important people undrestund the difference between legalizing and decriminalizing.

Legalization is the process of removing a legal prohibition against something which is currently not legal.

Legalization is a process often applied to what are regarded, by those working towards legalization, as victimless crimes, of which one example is the consumption of illegal drugs .

Legalization should be contrasted with decriminalization, which removes criminal charges from an action, but leaves intact associated laws and regulations.

Why does this matter?

Cannabis users are certainly not criminals but also they should never be punished for using cannabis or growing it.

Punishing cannabis users/growers means they are outlaws when they are actually no more outlaws than cigarette and alcohol users.

If you agree with this then please rate it 5. If you dont agree then please say why and give your arguments rather then just giving a bad rating and leaving.
