Support growing for legalized marijuana

Posted: Updated:

 There's strong support for legalizing marijuana, according to a new CNN/ORC poll.

 55% of Americans surveyed say marijuana should be made legal. 44% do not. 35% believe smoking marijuana is morally wrong. That's a big drop from 70% in 1987. The survey found Republicans and Southerners are the only major demographic groups who still oppose the legal use of pot.

 More than 1,000 adults nationwide were questioned by telephone for the poll. The overall sampling error is + or - 3%.
