49. Not legalized, but decriminalized.

Possession of up to one ounce of cannabis in California was decriminalized and reduced to Infraction status in 2010. Legally, it now has the same status as a parking ticket...you can't be arrested for it, there is no trial or judge, you can't be sentenced to any jail time or probation for it, and it won't appear on your criminal record. Like a traffic ticket, you CAN be slapped with a $100 fine, but even that is rare (DA's won't pursue it if you object, so the police rarely bother).
