The "L" Word and the "D" Word
Here's a good essay about the language that surrounds drug policy reform. Of course, it's fine to say this, and indeed some do try to control the language - Chicago officials don't want to call proposed marijuana reform "decriminalization" (whatever happened to that anyway?)
But that's the shorthand the media (including lil' ol' me) uses to describe it.
