Majority Of American Voters Favor Legal Cannabis
Last comment by MrTowlie 1 day, 4 hours ago.

An overwhelming number of voters favor the legalization and regulation of cannabis according to recent polls with 56% nationally in favor and just 36% against. http://tinyurl.com/767l87u
When asked if Medical Marijuana should be legal the numbers jump to 74% in favor and a pitiful 15% against. http://www.mpp.org/assets/pdfs/download-materials/MPP-M-D-Poll-5-12.pdf
With numbers like these, 18 states and the District Of Colombia having Medical Marijuana laws, Colorado and Washington State legalizing cannabis for recreational use, and individual cities in Michigan doing the same the stage is set for the final showdown over states rights and individual freedom.
Expect an increasing number of politicians to jump on the cannabis band wagon as they scurry for votes. Even the dumbest of them must realize that voters opposed to legalization are largely the over 65 crowd and are dying off leaving them without a voter base. As more and more of our youth turn 18 and Dems continue to oust the GOP from office the polls will continue to increase in favor of full legalization. Just like Prohibition v.1 (alcohol) was a massive failure so is Prohibition v.2 (cannabis). And just like Prohibition v.1 voters are fed up with the present insane policies dealing with a substance far safer than the legal poisons available from the alcohol industry and are demanding a change. It's only a matter of time, and not very much at that. When the states started to rebel against prohibition and repealed alcohol laws on a state by state basis it took just one election cycle for the feds to buckle. One of FDR's promises to the public was once elected he would repeal the Volstead Act and make a nice cold beer at the end of the day legal once again, and he was overwhelmingly elected by a populace that was sick and tired of the status quo. What will the next four years bring for us?

"“Lifetime marijuana use up to 20 joint-years is not associated with adverse changes in spirometric (exhalation strength) measures of lung health,” the study, featured in the medical journal Annals of the American Thoracic Society, concluded...“The distinction the Emory University study makes is not new,” Allen St. Pierre, executive director of the National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws, told ThinkProgress. “It’s ripe with citations from Donald Tashkin who has spent more than 40 years trying to answer the question of what happens to people when they smoke tobacco and marijuana. This new study took things further; today these products aren’t being smoked [in a way] that the product is carbonized and there’s ash."

Oregon Court Of Appeals: Marijuana Odor Is Not Offensive

“We are not prepared to declare that the odor of marijuana smoke is equivalent to the odor of garbage. Indeed, some people undoubtedly find the scent pleasing,” the appeals court wrote, in throwing out the second-degree criminal mischief convictions of a Philomath man whose home was searched in 2012 because of the aroma of pot drifting from it.
