The Craig Fahle Show

People's Choice: Crime and Punishment

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Craig Fahle and callers talk about a number of topics including: Juvenile lifers, mandatory minimum sentences, racism, stop and frisk, ending the war on drugs and legalizing marijuana.

A clear majority of Americans say that marijuana should be made legal if it will be taxed and regulated like alcohol, even though few say they use marijuana themselves, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll.

According to the new survey, 51 percent of Americans say that marijuana should be "legalized, taxed, and regulated like alcohol." A much smaller percentage (6 percent) say that the drug should be legalized, but not taxed and regulated. Only 33 percent of respondents said marijuana should not be legalized at all, and 10 percent said they weren't sure.
