Zogby: Americans Want Pot Legalized

That is right. According to a Zogby Poll half of all Americans want pot legalized.

A majority of Americans, in a poll released Wednesday, say it "makes sense to tax and regulate" marijuana. The Zogby poll, commissioned by the conservative-leaning O'Leary Report, surveyed 3,937 voters and found 52 percent in favor of legalization. Only 37 percent opposed.

A previous ABC News/Washington Post poll found 46 percent in support. In California, a Field Poll found 56 percent backing legalization.

Responding to the poll at a press conference Tuesday, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called for an open debate on legalization.
It is only a matter of time until national politicians take notice. They can smell the money. And nothing gets politicians as excited as the smell of money. You got it. They want it. All the traffic will bear plus 10%. In that respect they are worse than dope dealers who don't make a sale unless you are willing to buy. But politicians have one important advantage. They make their "sales" at gun point. Very convenient.
