With every new poll showing a majority of people supporting marijuana legalization, marijuana news is treading dangerously close to “dog bites man” territory.

It would almost be more noteworthy if Tuesday's Field Poll showed a majority among Californians in support of keeping cannabis illegal. But it doesn't. Though other polls released this fall showed over 60 percent of California voters in favor of ending marijuana prohibition, Field revealed something more radical: over half of voters are in favor of letting all nonviolent marijuana offenders out of jail.
