Wall Street Journal: 60 Percent of Americans Support Marijuana Legalization


Americans are split on many issues but appear to be in sync when it comes to opinions on the health risks of marijuana when compared to alcohol, tobacco and sugar.

Significantly more people say that cigarettes, alcoholic drinks and candy bars are more harmful to people’s health than marijuana, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey, NBC News reports.

Only 9% of respondents say that marijuana is the most harmful substance of the four, which is much less than the 41% putting tobacco first, the 24% who put alcohol first and the 21% who ranked sugar first.
