Legalization support growing

This is good news. NORML commissioned a poll on legalizing marijuana.
Forty-six percent of respondents -- including a majority of those polled on the east (53 percent) and west (55 percent) coasts -- say they support allowing states to regulate marijuana in a manner similar to alcohol. Forty-nine percent of respondents opposed taxing and regulating cannabis, and five percent were undecided.
The complete breakdown of the demographics is interesting. It seems our hardcore prohib supporters are Republican die hards, no doubt the same people who believe Bush can do no wrong and misinformed midwestern evangelical Christians. The age range is particularly enlightening. You would think the 30-49 group would know better.

Update: Steve Heath of Media Awareness Project checks into comments with an explanation.
