Poll: Record Support for Legalizing Pot

Put this in your pipe and smoke it: a Public Policy Poll released Tuesday finds a record majority of Americans are in favor of legalizing marijuana. Close to 60 percent of voters say pot should be legal, while only 39 percent were against it, according to the survey. Forty-seven percent of respondents said that the federal government should not interfere with the new ballot measures passed in Colorado and Washington that made recreational marijuana use legal for those 21 and older. The Obama administration hasn’t indicated whether it will try to stop implementation of the new laws.
