Re: Marijuana - legalization or decriminalization ?

Doesn’t matter if it’s decriminalize or legal, if people want it they will get it.

Anyway, if marijuana was legalized on a global scale, I still would think that alcohol would be the most consumed recreational drug out there. Second, would be nicotine (cigarettes).
