Survey: Majority of Americans Support Legalizing Marijuana for First Time

A recent survey found for the first time that a majority of Americans favor legalizing marijuana, Gallup reports.

Gallup found that 58% of Americans support making pot legal – a major increase since 2005, when only 35% of the population favored legalization.

The changing attitudes were seen over the past year in Washington and Colorado, where voters approved legalizing marijuana.

“Whatever the reasons for Americans’ greater acceptance of marijuana, it is likely that this momentum will spur further legalization efforts across the United States,” Gallup writer Art Swift wrote. “Advocates of legalizing marijuana say taxing and regulating the drug could be financially beneficial to states and municipalities nationwide. But detractors such as law enforcement and substance abuse professionals have cited health risks including an increased heart rate, and respiratory and memory problems.”
