Support for marijuana legalization hits new high, CBS News poll finds


Sixty-five percent of Americans now think marijuana should be legal — a record high in CBS News polling. Most view marijuana as less harmful than alcohol and believe it is less dangerous than other drugs. Many opponents of legalization, however, think it leads to a rise in crime and most favor the federal government taking action to stop the sale of pot in states where it is currently legal. Support for marijuana legalization has risen among some groups who have long been opposed to the idea.
