201110180914-1A Gallup poll released yesterday shows that for the first time since it began conducting the survey, more Americans favor legalizing pot than Americans who favor keeping it illegal.

As Radley Balko put it: "I’d love to hear a White House reporter ask [Obama] if he’s aware that a higher percentage of Americans now support legalizing marijuana than think he’s doing a good job as president."

The law-enforcement/prison industry, which profits greatly from marijuana prohibition, probably doesn't like these survy results too much, but since they control the politicians they will be fine for the next couple of decades, at least.
