Most of Americans prefer to legalized marijuana

08 January 2014 [13:10] - TODAY.AZ
According to a new study, most of the nation thinks marijuana should be legal.
In the poll, 55 percent of Americans surveyed say marijuana should be legalized.

On the other hand, 44 percent do not support it becoming legal and 35 percent of people believe smoking marijuana is morally wrong.

However, experts say the results show a change in the way Americans think.
In 1987, 70 percent of people were against the legalization of marijuana.

The survey found republicans and southerners are the only major demographic groups who still oppose the legal use of pot.

More than 1,000 adults across the nation were questioned for the poll.
