New poll says majority of U.S. favors legalizing marijuana5/23/2012
Chances are the person next to you thinks it should be legal to put that marijuana in your pipe and smoke it. A new Rasmussen poll has found 56 percent of U.S. voters "favor legalizing and regulating marijuana similar to the way alcohol and tobacco cigarettes are currently regulated." The support for legalization is up nine percentage points from March this year, when Rasmussen found 47 percent of us believed in legalizing and taxing marijuana to help extricate the nation from our current financial jam. Fiscally-minded stoners of America might feel somewhat conflicted about such support.
Should marijuana be taxed like alcohol and tobacco?
