    Legalization is the process of removing a legal prohibition against something which is currently not legal.

    Legalization is a process often applied to what are regarded, by those working towards legalization, as victimless crimes, of which one example is the consumption of illegal drugs (see Drug legalization).

    Legalization should be contrasted with decriminalization, which removes criminal charges from an action, but leaves intact associated laws and regulations.

    Proponents of libertarianism support legalization of what they regard as victimless crimes, such as recreational drug and alcohol use and gun ownership.
