Half of all adults now support legalising marijuana use – a record level, which could change the drug laws. The Gallup poll added that support for legalisation had crept up from just 12 per cent in 1969 to 30 per cent in 2000 and 40 per cent in 2009. ‘If this current trend on legalising marijuana continues, pressure may build to bring the nation’s laws into compliance with the people’s wishes,’ the summary said. Another survey carried out in September revealed that marijuana was becoming more popular with young adults in America. The results showed almost seven per cent of US citizens aged 12 and older had used the drug in 2010. The Gallup poll was based on telephone interviews carried out across America.
