    If the goal of drug decriminalization was reducing drug use, it failed, since drug use in Portugal increased. Marijuana is the most decriminalized drug and the most popular.

    However, at least you’re not labeled a criminal, in Portugal, when caught with small quantities. Instead of jail, you get education, rehabilitation, community service, and labeled a “sicko.”

  2. RE: ” those caught with small amounts…”

    What happens to those caught with LARGE amounts? Prison?

    re: ” “Portugal, 12 Years After Decriminalizing Drugs”)

    eh… not so much….. if they are still whacking those who “deal” drugs, right?
