Hurry up and legalize it.
Step one is to decriminalize it. American society, at this point, is too nervous about condoning marijuana, which is what the masses perceive legalization to be.

The first step in a sensible cannabis policy is decriminalization - this allows politicians and citizens to still retain an anti-drug view, while understanding that marijuana is not a sufficient threat to warrant police action. Deciding to condone a substance through legalization is far beyond what is socially possible at the moment - the first step is convincing the masses that potsmokers aren't worth the police funds used to harrass them. British Coloumbia (Canada), as well as the Netherlands, have set a good example which the US should follow.

Change must be gradual
