56% Favor Legalizing, Regulating Marijuana

A solid majority of voters nationwide favor legalizing and regulating marijuana
similar to the way alcohol and tobacco cigarettes are currently regulated. Most
also don?t believe it should be a crime for people to smoke marijuana in the
privacy of their own homes.

A new national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that 56% favor legalizing
and regulating marijuana in a similar manner to the way alcohol and tobacco
cigarettes are regulated. Thirty-six percent (36%) are opposed to such a
legalizing and regulating pot. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
