CBS poll shows most Americans want to legalize marijuana


Another year, another well-respected national poll confirms that a majority of Americans think that marijuana should be legal under federal law.
In April 2013, Pew Research found that for the first time since it began polling people back in the 1970s, most Americans thought pot should be legal. Now, CBS News has found that a majority of respondents favor marijuana legalization. It’s a view shared by 51 percent of those polled versus just 44 percent who still oppose legal weed.
But what else did the poll find? OC Weekly has the breakdown.
