Legalize it? 58% believe marijuana should be legal

Posted: Updated:
For the first time, a majority of Americans now support full legalization of marijuana.

A new Gallup poll shows that 58 percent now believe it's time to legalize the recreational use of pot.  That's a jump of 10 points from last year.

When Gallup first asked the question back in 1969, only 12 percent were in favor of full legalization.

A contributing factor to the high number this year is that 38 percent of Americans now admit to having tried the drug.

Washington state and Colorado have already legalized marijuana.  Several other states, including Arizona - could put the issue on the ballot in 2014.
