For the first time ever, a majority of Americans now support the full legalization of marijuana.
A new Pew Research poll found that 52-percent of people believe pot should be legalized, and about 45-percent are opposed to the idea.
Public support for legalization has grown over the past decade, and voters in Washington state and Colorado recently passed measures that legalized the recreational use of marijuana.
The drug is still illegal under federal law, but this new poll found that 6-in-10 Americans believe federal laws should not be enforced in states that have decided to allow marijuana use.
