Is Initiative 502 in Washington REALLY legalizing marijuana? – Logical Fallacy
There are 12 states already that have decriminalized marijuana to some extent.
This means you don’t get a criminal record, you don’t go to jail, and you don’t get blood drawn for possessing less than a certain amount, an ounce is pretty standard in most of these states.
I-502 offers NEW PENALTIES. Which is not what legalization should look like.
