I think that decriminalization makes sense... legalization not so much sense.
OK - I'm ignorant here. What's the difference.

If something is illegal, is it not also criminal?
Well itís illegal to forget to put more change in the parking meter, but Iíd hardly call it criminal.

Isn't this why words have definitions?


Yes, and itís why illegal and criminal are two different words.

They are different words, of course. One has 7 letters, and the other has 8.

But, in terms of meaning, how are they different?

The problem is that criminal is two different words.

The Confederate soldier was peculiar in that he was ever ready to fight, but never ready to submit to the routine duty and discipline of the camp or the march. The soldiers were determined to be soldiers after their own notions, and do their duty, for the love of it, as they thought best. Carlton McCarthy

Lots of things are illegal but not criminal. Local bylaws particularly. I can legally only put out one bag of garbage a week. Am I a criminal if I put out two?
