(Worthy News) - About two-thirds of Americans favor the legalization of marijuana -- the greatest majority ever recorded, Gallup said in a survey Monday.
The number has climbed dramatically since Gallup asked the question in 1969, when only 12 percent supported legalization. Support later grew to the 20-percent range, but momentum stalled until 2000, when it began a steady increase.
Approval by a majority of respondents was first seen in 2013, when Colorado and Washington state legalized recreational use. [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
