Support for marijuana legalization at all-time high - CBS News

The belief that pot should be legal has reached a new high in CBS News polls.  Sixty-one percent of Americans now say the it should be, a five-point increase from a year ago.  This sentiment has increased each year we’ve measured it since 2013, with the turning point to majority support coming in 2014. Back in 1979, this poll found just 27 percent saying it should be legal.  


It's supposed to be legal in California, but like hell it is. It's not for sale at 7-11 and they have drug sniffing dogs near the border. I was very glad to be able to tell the Border Patrol that I did not smoke weed (and did not add that I sure wish I could). I dimly recall what it was like. I stopped smoking what little I did because its effects were indistinguishable from dropping 30-40 points of IQ. TV became fascinating, for example. Still, it's supposed to be better now. I doubt it, but I'd like to give it a legal try. Unless it's dead-on legal, though, it's not worth the risk. I know what you're thinking, but I draw cops like a dog turd for some odd reason. My mechanic told me it's my "attitude", whatever that may be.
