    Do you support federal marijuana legalization?

    Figures in the last 6 months have ranged from 47% to 56% of Americans in favor of marijuana legalization, and roughly 81% support legalization for medicinal purposes. 60% say that the matter should be decided by the states. Let's see how the DP community feels about this. Should marijuana be legalized (for medicinal and/or recreational use), decriminalized, or prohibited?

    Don't really care.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    i support full legalization; basically, the alcohol model. adults should be able to buy it commercially or to make their own.

    edit to add i that support full national legalization. a hodgepodge of backward states taking twenty years to finally legalize it while the states around them have various degrees of legality will promote proliferation of blackmarkets / crime / confusion.

    Legalization at the federal level does leave it to the states, just as the repeal of alcohol prohibition did.

    Legalize it. Not only is it less harmful than alcohol, it's inherently immoral to imprison human beings for non-violent behavior that effects nobody but themselves.

    Re: Do you support federal marijuana legalization?

    Exactly.
    Yes, for recreational use
    Leave it up to the states to decide
    Legalize/decriminalize all drug

    All 3 apply. By leaving it up to the states, I seriously doubt anything but pot will be legalized. States are stupid in that way. Notice how prostitution is illegal in every state (except remote NV) even though it would be wiser and safer to legalize brothels? Same thing with drugs. They should be able to legalize - but they won't.

    Keep it illegal. I would support less jail time but instead imposing heavy fines on marijuana users.

    Yeah, legalize it. The minor harm it may cause isn't worth the massive cost to enforce laws against it.
