Many years ago, in 1988, according to MarketWatch, less than 25% of Americans supported marijuana. Now, a movement has begun in the recent years supporting legalization. Why have social attitudes changed and how exactly have they changed? How has legalization of marijuana in certain states changed attitudes and outlooks on the drug? How do you think it will continue to change?

It's interesting that in the United States, support for marijuana has been increasing. According to the Pew Research Center, about 62% of Americans believe that marijuana should be legalized. I'm guessing it has a lot to do with the generational gap and the kind of education that we as a new generation receive as compared to before. More research has been conducted on the effects of cannabinoids during our generation, and thus we were able to learn more accurate scientific facts about marijuana compared to those of the previous generations.
