Support for legalizing marijuana in America has reached a record high according to Pew Research.
57% support legalizing it, while only 37% oppose legalization. That 20% point gap is the biggest of all time.
This growing support for legalization will add to the momentum for criminal justice reform. Massive numbers of Americans are in jail on marijuana and drug related crimes, which has destroyed families, damaged the economy, and cost massive amounts of money.
As public opinion changes, policy must change to reflect the new consensus.
