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.

Let's be professional people. Let's present ourselves as respectable citizens. We cannot permit the counter-culture (Height-Ashberry) stigma to continue if we want to succeed.

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.

Consider the source. Do you really think the public believes anything conjured up by a bunch of stoners at NORML? Really! They have about as much credibility as the KKK publications about race relations.

That's a rather incindiary analogy. Gallup's and ORG's poll results are what they are regardless of who actually reports it.

Believing polls is like believing Obama care is going to cure all our country's ills. " Yeah, they said it so it must be how EVERYBODY thinks" "I saw it on the news so it must be true", "Everybody says..........". Think beyond what groups are trying to force you to think.

Yeah. The polls had Ronmey 20 points ahead of Obama going into 2012. Right.

Gallup would have been out of business 20 years ago if their numbers on any given subject were off as bad as you claim.

Are they regulated? Is there a government watchdog over pollsters to guarantee 100% accuracy? Have you talked to them today, yesterday, last week? But on the other hand, it's good that some people believe everything they're told as it keeps the NRA, infomercial pitch men, KKK, NAACP, used car and real estate salesmen in business. Keep the economy flowing.

AhHa!!! You have complete and absolute trust in the same government that has run up 17 TRILLION dollars in the national debt! Now you emotionally insert the KKK and the NAACP in the same sentance???

Admit it. You're a PROHIBITIONIST in desquise!

Good Luck with all that "Refer Madness" crap.

Regulated by who?; A buracracy like the DEA?, ATF, Obama, Congress? Can we trust the government to be honest watchdogs?

No! The U.S Government can't possibly ideologically biased. Can they?

A little history may be needed here:

Look up any objectional source on prohibition. Just key it into your favorite search engine.

Now that we are refreshed on our prohibition history, replace mafia king pin with drug cartel and change the year.

Now, do we not have the exact same result?

Also, let's consider the government agencies /corporations who are getting rich off of the War On Drugs:

DEA: Continuation of this war justifies their
existance and their pay checks.

Pharmaceuticals: get rich on their synthetic drugs
where cannabis migh bite into
their profits.

CCA: The more people incarcerated; the more
money they make for their shareholders.

Drug Testers: get rich off of the Drug-Free
Workplace policies. i.e. the more
people tested, the bigger the profits.
this is a profiteering corporation
too.

Point being, the War On Drugs has become a corrupt business model. Why else would elected representatives, senators, the President, Supreme Court Justices and key cabinet members not be subjected to the same drug-free workplace rules that the country class must abide by?

Don't worry about what's going on in Washington, don't worry what going on in your town, and don't worry about what's going on in your neighborhood UNLESS you're willing to stand up for legalization and against your local recreational distributors who may not share your feelings and may want to discuss the situation with you in private. Got Balls yes/no???
