Americans Evenly Split On Legalizing Marijuana Use

Posted Nov 30, 2012 at 11:59 AM by Maurice Berger

A survey by CBS News reports that Americans are evenly split--47% to 47%--on the question of whether marijuana use should be legal. As CBS News observes: "This shift in public opinion was seen at the ballot box this month, when Colorado and Washington became the first states in the nation to approve of recreational marijuana use among adults over the age of 21. Marijuana use of any kind, however, is still illegal under federal law. It's unclear at this point how the Obama administration intends to respond."
