Very few controversial laws are ever changed without a period of sustained civil disobedience preceding the change.

They still need to charge, convict and sentence, but make the sentence fit the crime. If it is victimless, and non-violent give them fines, community service, house arrest, and/or probation depending on the nature of the crime.

People will use them regardless of the legal status.

Weed is a less dangerous drug than either alcohol or nicotine, both of which cause far more deaths.

Not if the death penalty is applied. Caught with it, using it whatever, execution within 24 hours.
