…vast majority of U.S. voters want federal government to respect state marijuana laws

The nationwide survey of 1,323 voters found that five out of seven voters (71%) — including majorities of Republicans, Democrats, independents, and every age group polled — oppose the government enforcing federal prohibition laws in states that have made marijuana legal for medical or adult use. 93% now support allowing marijuana for medical use and 59% support making it legal for all uses

“Americans of all ages and political persuasions can agree that the federal government has no business interfering in state marijuana laws. People do not want federal prohibition laws to be enforced in states that have rejected them. There appears to be near universal support for allowing the use of medical marijuana, and the majority in favor of broader reform is growing quickly. Our country might be divided on some issues, but more and more it is looking like marijuana policy is not one of them.
