Everybody pass the Cheetos! A majority of Americans now support marijuana legalization — 50%, up from 46% last year, according to a new Gallup poll. Stoners can celebrate that this percentage is an all-time record-high in the history of the poll. The poll was released following the news that California Medical Association has called on the federal government to legalize the drug.
A record-high 50% of Americans now say the use of marijuana should be made legal, up from 46% last year. Forty-six percent say marijuana use should remain illegal.
Support for legalizing marijuana has been increasing over the past several years, rising to 50% today — the highest on record. If this current trend on legalizing marijuana continues, pressure may build to bring the nation’s laws into compliance with the people’s wishes.
