US (ChattahBox) – According to story published by the marijuana-reform support site, Norml, marijuana legislation has been voted the most popular question in a White House poll.
The poll, which was run on the White House’s website in the last week of May, asked about what issues created the most issues in the general public. Marijuana reform ranked as the highest, showing a shift in public opinion.
For the first time, legalization (especially in a medical context) seems very likely, and the people are supporting an open and supportive discussion.
“For the Obama administration, marijuana law reform represents a political opportunity, not a political liability,” NORML executive Allen St. Pierre commented on the pole.
“Federal lawmakers from both parties would be wise to embrace the results of this and other polls and act accordingly.”
