The Trend Line: Support for Marijuana Legalization Reaches All-Time High

Gallup Editor-in-Chief Frank Newport explores Americans’ changing views on marijuana legalization since 1969.


  1. Okay, for the record, I don't smoke it now, but I did used to do so. I've always felt that marijuana being illegal was a bad decision all the way around. It turns otherwise law-abiding citizens into criminals, merely for possession of a small amount in this country, and all for a drug that is probably less dangerous overall then alcohol and tobacco combined. I will admit to having COPD, though, partly due to growing up in a refinery town and party from smoking this and cigarettes. It's the number one reason i quit. I sincerely hope we as a nation can overturn this law. I just wish they'd put the vote to the people, and let us decide what we want. (Edibles never did it for me. Mainly because I suck at cooking them, but then I never learned how to roll a decent joint, either. My fingers just weren't dexterous enough.)
