Marijuana Legalization Is More Popular Than Congress, Obama, and BART

Preferable to BART

As predictable as the sixth story in the same news cycle asking harried commuters to share their thoughts on traffic are polls asking Americans how they feel about marijuana legalization.

That is to say: people don't like traffic. And they like marijuana legalization.

On Tuesday, Gallup released a followup to the 2011 poll that saw record support among Americans — all Americans — for marijuana legalization. Another poll, another record, as 58 percent of Americans are now behind legalizing marijuana.

That would make legal weed more popular than Congress, more popular than the President — more popular than most things.
