Almost 56 percent of Washington voters said yes to legalizing marijuana, and on Dec. 6 it will be legal to posses it here (you can find explanations on the new law from the Seattle Police Department here).
Last year Gallup released a poll showing 50 percent of Americans were in favor of legalizing Cannabis — a record high.
According to its website:
When Gallup first asked about legalizing marijuana, in 1969, 12% of Americans favored it, while 84% were opposed. Support remained in the mid-20s in Gallup measures from the late 1970s to the mid-1990s, but has crept up since, passing 30% in 2000 and 40% in 2009 before reaching the 50% level in this year's Oct. 6-9 annual Crime survey.
Seems marijuana has become more socially acceptable. We asked our writers if they had any moral issues with its legalization.
Soon marijuana will be legalized in Washington. Does that change your opinion about it being moral or immoral?
