In my morning round of various sites I came across a new story from ABC that says 81% of Americans polled support legalizing marijuana for medical use and nearly half favor decriminalizing the drug. See Medical Marijuana, ABC News Poll Analysis - ABC News What found more interesting was the split among age lines. Where those over 65 are less inclined to legalize. That split really shows the difference between those of us that came of age in the 60's and beyond. It sure would be a boon to the national and state treasuries to tax the product and make it available from the same outlets that one can buy alcohol. These folks are already used to having to check ID's, why not another product line in the mix. Besides, you can't smoke yourself to death in one sitting, but you sure can drink yourself to death.
