This is incorrect.

They legalized it, which is very different from decriminalizing it. Decriminalizing it means that it is still subject to civil penalties/fines/tickets. In other words, you can still get a ticket from a cop if he sees you smoking a joint. Legalizing means you can smoke a joint legally and without the danger of receiving a ticket or being arrested, etc.

Colorado legalized it.
