From article:

Fifty two percent of Americans support legalizing, taxing and regulating marijuana, according to a new Zogby poll released late Wednesday.

3,937 voters were asked: “Scarce law enforcement and prison resources, a desire to neutralize drug cartels and the need for new sources of revenue have resurrected the topic of legalizing marijuana. Proponents say it makes sense to tax and regulate the drug while opponents say that legalization would lead marijuana users to use other illegal drugs. Would you favor or oppose the government’s effort to legalize marijuana?”

52 percent came out in favor, with 37 percent against. The poll was commissioned by the conservative-leaning O’Leary report.

Full stop, the majority of Americans wants marijuana legalized so why isn´t it?

By legalizing it and taxing the hell out of it they would likely fix the economy, isn´t that something?

Also marijuana is not a gateway drug! If you say marijuana is a gateway drug the alcohol is a gateway drug to.

Getting tired of this debate.

WOG out.

    That’s why we need to stop passing decriminalization measures and start passing legalization ones. http://stonerdiary.wordpress.com
