Poll: Record Support for Pot Legalization
POLL: SUPPORT FOR LEGALIZING MARIJUANA REACHES A NEW HIGH
(CNN) – Support for legalizing marijuana in the United States reaches a new high.
61% of Americans think pot should be legal, according to a new CBS news poll.
88% support medical marijuana use.
The majority of Americans don’t think the federal government should try to prohibit the sale of marijuana in states where it is legal.
But, the Trump White House seems to disagree.
Press secretary Sean Spicer said there may be more enforcement because federal drug laws list marijuana as an illegal substance.
The Obama administration had issued an official memo saying the federal government would not interfere in states where recreational pot is legal.
