Should marijuana be legalized?

Most Americans say YES!!

Roughly six in 10 Americans think marijuana should be legalized, according to a new Pew Research survey.

Sixty-one percent of respondents said the substance should be legal. That is slightly more than the 57 percent that said so a year ago and it is representative of the steady increase in support for legalizing marijuana that has taken shape over the past decade.

Support for legalization was the highest among millennials, at 70 percent, according to the Pew survey. They're followed by Gen Xers, 66 percent of whom support marijuana legalization, and then by Baby Boomers, at 56 percent.

Party affiliation also played a role in support for legalization. Nearly seven in 10 Democrats and 65 percent of independents support legalizing the substance. Among respondents that identify as Republicans, just 43 percent favor legalization.

Republicans under the age of 40, however, largely support legalization 62 percent to 38 percent while Republicans ages 40 to 65 are near-evenly divided on the matter 48 percent favor legalization and 49 percent do not.
Sixty-seven percent of Republicans 65 and older oppose marijuana legalization, according to the Pew survey.

(I find this fascinating because every single senior I know LOVES cocktail hour--every night--5:00 sharp.)

Legalized, and obviously regulated and taxed. Not only that, but everyone currently imprisoned on marijuana charges should be pardoned.

Definitely share. I'd love to see your crops.

I think it should be totally legal. Ought to be fucking government sponsored. So many problems could be solved if everyone just smoked a fucking joint.

I'm positive the feds could show up at your door, trash your house, seize and freeze, and afterwards toss your ass in jail for some trumped up crime, real or not, if they so desired.

What's your point.
