Legalizing Marijuana More Popular Than Obama, Health Reform, and the War on Terror

The most recent article at my CAIVN column:

"You read that right. Legalizing marijuana for recreational use by adults has more widespread support than President Obama's administration. Pot legalization is also more popular than the recent health care bill that passed in Congress and has higher approval ratings than our handling of the Global War on Terror...

On page four of AP/CNBC's poll report, respondents were asked if they thought the U.S. should treat marijuana and alcohol similarly. 44% thought that marijuana shouldn't be treated any differently than alcohol, while another 12% even wanted less strict rules for marijuana than for alcohol- making a whopping 56% in favor of pot legalization."

Read the whole thing here.

  3. It's only a matter of time before Congress needs to use this as a way to get re-elected. If they botch everything else, and pass this their constituency will probably still support them.
