Legalization of pot inevitable: U.S. poll


Three out of four Americans believe marijuana will one day be legal to buy and use anywhere in the U.S., according to a public opinion poll.

Fifty-four percent of respondents to the Pew Research Center survey said marijuana should be legalized, compared to 42 percent who were opposed, the pollsters reported Wednesday.

When asked if they thought the sale and use of marijuana would eventually be legal nationwide, 75 percent responded “yes.”
