This should be welcome news for all the “4/20” supporters who read this site.

National poll numbers have come in that may make you want to light up ASAP. A record 47 percent of Americans support the legalization and taxing of marijuana, according to a recent Rasmussen Poll.

On the other hand, 42 percent of those polled say they don’t support its legalization. Ten percent are undecided.

I can’t believe we are still having this argument in 2012. Seems like my whole life people have been asking whether or not to make marijuana more mainstream. Just do it already!

*Rasmussen Reports polled 1,000 American adults between March 24-25, 2012. The margin of error is +/- 3 percent.



Do you support the legalization of marijuana? Why or why not? 


Thanks to Think Progress for the heads-up on the poll numbers.
