That was the title of the article exactly as printed. I thought it was appropriate.

Bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch...

For the record, I have never bitched about anyone's title, even with misspellings and bad grammar! If you have an issue with my titles, don't read them. See? Very easy!

Again, I haven't researched it, but is there a city in one of the two states that has a larger population than Philly? I don't think Denver does for instance.

Also, decriminalize is the correct term. That means it's no longer a criminal offense punishable by jail time or even a jail visit.

No mug shot, finger printing, etc. It is now a "civil" matter the same as a parking ticket. A parking ticket for instance is NOT a criminal offense. Now, you just mail in your payment for the ticket so you can do your part to keep the pockets of the local bureaucracy fat.

After all, it's all about the money. Originally it was about them getting money by putting people through the court system over weed. Now, they have passed so many bullshit laws that the court systems are constipated. So they are starting to figure, let's just get some money from weed smokers via tickets and keep things moving.

They NOW realize that once they start incarcerating weed smokers, they start losing money housing them. So they go in the hole rather than fill their pockets! Simple addition and subtraction like we learn starting in the first grade, lol. But they are JUST now starting to see it.

Thank you, azdesertsnake01!

I was going to ask the person to put his or her joint down long enough to notice it said, "city."

It happens to everyone. Sometimes if there is a major smoke screen between the person typing and the computer screen, meanings can get lost, lol.

I hate the word decriminalize, it's still a misleading term. It's still not legal to smoke there, same as it's not legal to block a fire hydrant with your car.

I did notice it said "city".. Who gives the fuck about a city when entire states actual have fully legal access to herb.

The title of this article should be, "Philadelphia reduces marijuana penalties". That would be non-sensationalized.

I don't see that it is sensationalized, but no biggie. I can't think of a better way to word it myself in order to get the two main points through.
