    There is hope for America yet.

    Still, the fine seems rather pointless if you ask me. If you decriminalise something, what are you actually fining the person for? Anti-social behaviour? Doing something you disagree with?

    Just so long as its clear that there's a difference between "decriminalizing" it, and saying its "ok". Basically, you have kids get caught on marijuna possession, and its preventing them from having a life later... getting loans, jobs, etc. Moreover, its costing too much in lawyers, judges, etc... simply for something that needs to be fined.
