The call for marijuana law reform by Kristin Davis and others is less and less a fringe sentiment...The latest polling shows 46% now favor making weed legal. That's the highest level ever measured.
What I think this means is that there will be more and more public discourse on the topic because unlike crimes like murder or bank robbery, there is no consensus in society on what to do.
Opposition is clustered in the older age groups.
A legalization proposition in California will likely fail on Tuesday in part because of how the law is written.
Despite increasing support, this is still an issue the major party candidates want to stay away from as it places them at odds with the law and order crowd.
It will be up to third party candidates to raise the issue, and frankly I don't know what needs to be done. I do think the current duplicity and hypocrisy towards the substance suggests change will eventually come. After all, its only been illegal for about 80 years anyway...
