All the Polls Say Majority of Americans Favor Marijuana Legalization

That's the idea

Gallup, Pew, straw — whatever poll you take, the result of late is the same: a majority of Americans think marijuana should be legal.

Today's offering is from the Pew Research Center, which has been gauging the public's desire on drug policy since the 1960s. And “for the first time in more than four decades,” Pew is recording a majority in favor of ending the war on the magic plant, with 52 percent of our nation's citizens in favor of legalization, to 45 percent still hanging onto Prohibition mentality.

It seems indisputable that legalization is the will of the people. So how are those legalization measures in Congress faring? (Hint: not well).
