  •  Legalize not practical in all states (0+ / 0-)

    Legislators in Kentucky are not going to legalize in the short run.  Even in CA, legalization may be overturned by SCOTUS. It has in the past when citizen petitions were passed to legalize pot.  Though I agree with your overall point, decriminalization is an interim step on the way to legalization.  Go for legalization in states where the majority supports it, such as CA, but have decriminalization ready to pass, if  SCOTUS overturns.  At least with decriminalization you save millions of dollars in wasted money on prisons and enforcement.
