For First Time, Majority Of Americans Favor Marijuana Legalization


Gallup on new poll results revealing a dangerous drop in the number of squares:

For marijuana advocates, the last 12 months have been a period of unprecedented success as Washington and Colorado became the first states to legalize recreational use of marijuana. And now for the first time, a clear majority of Americans (58%) say the drug should be legalized. This is in sharp contrast to the time Gallup first asked the question in 1969, when only 12% favored legalization.

Success at the ballot box in the past year in Colorado and Washington may have increased Americans’ tolerance for marijuana legalization. Support for legalization has jumped 10 percentage points since last November and the legal momentum shows no sign of abating.

    Jesus H. Chr*st, can’t we just invade Iraq again instead?

  2. The herb shown in the image looks really low quality. I haven’t even seen bad weed like that since the fookin 70s.

      That’s always been in the back of my mind- the crazy idea that legalizing weed will bring all those unethical corperations into the pot game-you know its not just Monsanto, but all the tobacco growers as well. The nasty crap they could bring into it makes me think it might be better to keep it illegal, but I also know that the USGovt. keep its illegal because it make them a lot of money being that way.

  4. I’m a big fan of Al Green, but Mr. Brown wont let you down.
