Decriminalizing it doesn't mean legalising it. It would be
treated similar to a traffic infraction (i.e. you would get a ticket
and have to pay a fine, and that would be the end of it; in otherwords
no criminal record, etc.). Also, only possession of small amounts is
being decriminalized. A large grow op obviously intended for
distribution would still be a crime.
