For The First Time Ever The Majority Of Americans Want Marijuana Legalized
U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
And that’s just the start, here are the details via MSN:
A historic 52 percent of adults in the U.S., according to a survey by the Pew Research Center, are in favor of legalizing marijuana, up 11 points since 2010. Sixty percent think the feds have no business enforcing laws in the 18 states that have legalized marijuana use for medical purposes. Seventy-two percent of adults think the cost of pursuing and imprisoning marijuana users is more than it’s worth, and the cops enforcing those laws agree. According to Rolling Stone, many officers are sick of busting teens for marijuana possession when they could be doing “real police work.”
This is thankfully not too surprising at this point. Remember when Bill Clinton was all worried about public opinion 20 years ago emphatically emphasizing he “Did not inhale?” Well President Obama wasn’t too concerned what people thought of his drug use a couple years ago when asked if he inhaled, he responded, “Of course, that was the point.”
Hopefully soon everyone will be able to comfortably pass the Dutchie to the left without looking over his or her shoulder.
