Majority of Republicans support marijuana legalization

Regulated Cannabis Grow

Overall, 64 percent of Americans support legalizing marijuana, according to the poll, which was taken October 5 to 11.

Support for legalizing marijuana just reached a record high, with the vast majority of Americans favoring legalizing the drug, according to a new Gallup poll released Wednesday.

The poll also marks another milestone: It's the first time the majority of Republicans support marijuana legalization, with 51% indicating that they'd like to see the end of federal prohibition.

But not only will the games be playable, but optional multiplayer modes like system link are compatible with Xbox Ones as well. Microsoft announced that there will be no achievements for original Xbox games that have been enhanced for Xbox One.

Every once and awhile a poll comes out that says that more Americans than ever support marijuana legalization.

However, support for legalization among independents actually fell by three percentage points since previous year, when 70% indicated they were in favor of legalization. Support increased precipitously in the next decade.

Medical marijuana is legal in 29 states and Washington, D.C. A majority of Americans have supported legalization since 2013.

Nintendo Switch Update 4.0.0 Adds GameCube Controller Support
GameXplain showcases the GameCube controllers being used for the brand new Fire Emblem: Warriors on the Nintendo Switch . Presumably this won't work in handheld mode, because there's no wireless connectivity between the Switch and its dock.

Already, marijuana has been legalized in eight states and Washington, DC. That still lags far behind Democrats at 72 percent and Independents at 67 percent. With this poll showing nationwide support for legalization above sixty percent (60%) for the first time, the trend is even more clear and we appear to be on the course to a point where opposition to legalization is a distinct minority across the nation. The public's growing acceptance of cannabis contrasts with the policies of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has called for stricter enforcement against the substance.

But greater support for legalization could complicate any administration efforts to crack down on pot. "Over the past several years, Gallup has found that Americans have become more liberal on a variety of social issues".

Legal marijuana now has equal support to gay marriage among Americans, Gallup notes.

Nasa presidential candidate Raila Odinga has said that he has not called for any demonstrations on Thursday. His threats to boycott the election if certain conditions are not met, Mr Pkosing said, will be unlawful.

Coloradans voted in 2012 to legalize recreational marijuana, meanwhile, opening the door for the country's first state-licensed retail pot shops to open in January 2014. The majority of state legislatures and governors' seats are controlled by the GOP. But if more and more Republican voters begin to support pro-marijuana candidates during the primaries, they could begin to shift marijuana policies throughout the United States.
