Survey News Favors Marijuana
A recent Public Policy Polling is leaving a lasting perma-grin on the users of marijuana. Survey news of nearly 58% said the marijuana should be made legal under federal law. This is the first time since before 2011 a Gallup poll showed more than 50% of Americans favoring the legalization of marijuana for recreational use. Both Colorado and Washington state are leading the way to a more marijuana user friendly country. A recent telephone and online survey campaign of 1325 voters suggests that the United States is ready to take a more subtle stance on those who wish to light up.
