Drug Warrior's Dilemma: Pot Legalization More Popular Than Ever
More than half of US citizens live in states with some level of marijuana legalization. Yet, amid a plethora of polls showing that cannabis legalization is more popular with Americans than ever, the Trump administration is poised to ramp up its failed Drug War.
First Trump appointed racist-prohibitionist Jeff Sessions as Attorney General and planning to name yet another failed Drug Warrior, Congressman Tom Marino (R-Pennsylvania) to head the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP — the drug czar’s office), according to news reports. Marino has also been a reliable vote in opposition to marijuana reform in Congress.
Conservative poll hits new high in legalization support
The percentage of Americans who “think the use of marijuana should be legal” has increased dramatically over the past ten years and now stands at a record high, according to polling data compiled by the University of Chicago’s General Social Survey. The survey has a margin of error of +/- 2.5 percentage points.
