When savvy public policy advocates realize they’ve lost an argument with the voters, they shift their position. That’s what marijuana prohibitionists are doing today with a just-released survey.
In a groundbreaking new report, the Partnership at DrugFree.org admits that “support for medicalization and…for decriminalization and legalization of marijuana is widespread” and even provides new poll numbers demonstrating that the majority of Americans support allowing medical marijuana for approved patients and further want to remove the threat of jail time for marijuana for all adults.
In another gift to marijuana reformers, the Partnership admits that “support for each of these scenarios increased by anywhere from three to 11 percentage points when survey respondents were given more information about what medicalization, decriminalization and legalization of marijuana means.” It’s true: People are more likely to support marijuana legalization when they understand that it’s not about creating a reckless marijuana free-for-all and is actually about effectively regulating and controlling the marijuana trade in way that improves public safety compared to the obvious disaster of prohibition.
