Pot Trot – Public Opinion Trends Re: Marijuana

Gallup poll find historic 50% of Americans favor legalizing Marijuana


Are you surprised by this finding? What I find interesting about this result is not so much achieving the 50% hurdle, but look at the trend since the 1970s. This is an issue that seem not to be going away, and more and more Americans are supporting the legalization of marijuana.

What would happen if we legalized and regulated (like alcohol or tobacco) marijuana? Do you support the legalization or not? Be careful not to base your argument on any of the “myths” of marijuana that are out there. To support you argument, make sure you are relying on high quality information to strengthen position.
