Sign of the times: Support for legalizing pot hits all-time high

Coming Sunday: As It Stands takes a look at what President Obama has said about medical marijuana while campaigning for the presidency, and what he’s actually done since being in office. It isn’t pretty, but lies never are!

50 percent of Americans favor the legalization of marijuana, up from 46 percent last year, according to a new Gallup poll.

It was the first time in the survey that the number of people favoring legalization was higher than those opposed.

The support for legalized marijuana use has continued to climb since Gallup first began asking questions about it in 1969. Then, only 12 percent of Americans supported legalization, with 84 percent opposed.
