The marijuana legalization movement has reached a new high point when even Fox News Poll shows majority of Americans now support legalizing its use. In a poll conducted April 19 to 21, 2015 by Fox News, 51 percent of Americans “favor legalizing marijuana” with 44 percent opposed. This is the first time the Fox News Poll is showing majority support for legalization. The numbers were almost reversed just two years ago in 2013 with 49 percent opposed to legalization and 46% in favor. And almost 15 years ago, only 26 percent were in favor of legal marijuana in the Fox News Poll.
Is there a more conservative major news outlet than Fox News? Every major poll that has come out in recent months have shown that a majority of Americans want marijuana legalized. And these number increase even more when the added benefit of marijuana tax revenue are added to the legalization question. Anyone who opposes legalization of marijuana at this point do so against the will of the majority.
