420 with CNW — Decriminalization or Legalization: Understanding the Difference

From the early 1970s, the United States has waged an intensive campaign against drugs; the movement has been dubbed the “war on drugs.” Seeking to financially cut off the criminal gangs that supply illicit drugs as well as mitigate the physical harm done by said drugs to users, the government doled out harsh sentences to those caught selling and buying drugs.
