Nearly Half Support Legalizing Pot

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters now favor the legalization of recreational marijuana use in their state. Thirty-eight percent (38%) are still opposed, but 13% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
