“Legalize It” Says Half of America

10.17.11 ANIMAL

While most polls go ignored by pretty much anyone who isn’t running for office or has their own talk show, the latest one by Gallup could be of interest to many of our dear readers. It seems that a “record high” 50% of Americans think weed should be legalized while 46% prefer it remains illegal.

These numbers are of particular importance because it shows an upward trend from a mere 12% approval rating in 1969 to 30% in 2000 and 46% in 2010. If it continues like this, politicians may even consider endorsing it.
