Survey Says Majority of Americans in Favor of Legalizing Marijuana

weedPut this in your pipe and smoke it. The majority of Americans are in favor of legalizing marijuana for the first time since the Pew Research Center began asking the question 40 years ago.

According to the national survey, which was conducted from March 13th through 17th, 52 percent of Americans said pot should be legal. Another 45 percent said it should be illegal.

This latest poll comes after some states have already legalized weed. In 2012, voters in Colorado and Washington voted to make pot legal for recreational use for adults 21 and over. However, marijuana still remains illegal under federal law.

      While as a Chritian, I am against intoxicants for the sake of being intoxicated, I do believe there are natural medicinal properties to marijuana that should be explored. I also believe we should change the stupid laws that outlaw all hemp, because one type can be used to get high. That is stupid legislation, that hurts America’s productivity because you want to regulate one type, so you outlaw all types. Legalize it and tax it. BTW ask any police officer you know, if he has EVER gone on a domestic call where only marijuana was used, if he has EVER picked up an intoxicated driver for marijuana, or how many accidents he can remeber being attributed to marijuana. Then ask him the same of alcohol and ask yourself which shoul dbe illegal?

        I agree! I myself take tranquilizers for anxiety and a mood stabilizer. I would much rather take something natural than something chewing up my liver. But then, meds bring the govt money while pot doesn’t…yet

    More people die from cancer due to chemicals in cigarettes by either smoking them or by second hand smoke. Alcohol attributes to more auto accidents and deaths than any other substance. Yet, something that grows out of the ground for a period of time, is harvested, then processed and cleaned/trimmed, with no other additives/chemicals/treatments is illegal.
