Majority of Voters Think Marijuana Should Be Legal
Almost 90% of American voters think marijuana should be made legal nationwide for either personal use, medical use, or both, according to the results of a new survey.
The wide-ranging Harvard-Harris poll found that 49% of voters think marijuana should be legal for personal and medical use, while 37% said the same for medical use.
Only 14% said the drug should be illegal for all uses.
57% of the voters surveyed said legalizing marijuana makes societies better.
3 states and 2 US territories ban marijuana usage in all forms. California allows marijuana usage and possession and currently has a huge surplus of the drug because growers are producing too much of it.
A recent Gallup poll found that 45% of Americans have tried marijuana.
A report last December claimed that cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, an illness tied to marijuana usage is becoming more prevalent in the 29 states that have legalized the federally banned drug.
Conservative pundit Ann Coulter says marijuana is destroying the country.
Speaking at Politicon, a nonpartisan political event, over the weekend Ms. Coulter when asked whether or not weed should be legal said: “You can legalize all the drugs you want when there is not a welfare state. No marijuana makes people retarded, especially when they’re young.”
