47 Percent Support Legalizing Marijuana; Record High

A record number of Americans support legalizing and taxing marijuana, according to a new Rasmussen Poll, which has a reputation for being conservative-leaning. Nearly half, 47 percent, agree it should be legalized, while 42 percent are opposed. A Gallup poll from October had a similar result, with 50 percent — also a record high — saying they support legalization.
