Gallup has been polling on the subject of Marijuana legalization since 1970. Fast-foward to 2013 to the latest Gallup poll. This poll shows a record 58% in favor of legalization for (get this) "Recreational" use. This poll, also, shows major shifts in all demographic and age groups.

Sounds like the tide is shifting.

Fifty-five percent of Americans favor making cannabis legal for adults, according to the findings of a CNN/ORC International survey released late Monday. The percentage is the highest ever reported by the survey, which has been tracking public opinion on the issue since 1973, and marks a 12 percentage point jump in support since the last time pollsters posed the question in 2012.

In addition, only 35 percent of those polled responded that consuming cannabis was “morally wrong”— down from 70 percent in 1987, the last time pollsters posed the question.

The CNN/ORC polled surveyed 1,010 Americans and possesses a margin of error of +/- 3 percent.

With times getting worse you got to keep the masses sedated.
What used to be wrong is now right and what is right is now wrong.
