Infographic: Legalizing Pot Supported By a Majority

Marijuana is legal for use in states like Washington and Colorado. For the first time more Americans are in favor of the legalization of pot, according to a new study by the Pew Research CEnter.

Will marijuana use eventually become legal across the country? A new Pew Research Center survey finds 75-percent of Americans believe marijuana legalization is inevitable, whether they personally support or oppose its sale or use. Already legal in Colorado and Washington state for recreational use, its medicinal use is legal in 18 more states.

Surprisingly, while the poll indicates 54-percent now support marijuana legalization, 63-percent say they would be bothered by its use in public and a majority think it would lead to minors trying it.
