Two Prominent Republicans Endorse Marijuana Legalization

Washington Republican U.S. Senate candidate Michael Baumgartner and former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) both endorsed ballot initiatives in their respective states to legalize marijuana. Support for legalization reached an historic high nationwide last year, when for the first time a Gallup poll showed that 50 percent of Americans now support marijuana legalization, as compared to only 46 percent who oppose it.
