From CBS News.

(CBS) The times, they are a-changin.

With marijuana now legal in two states (and perhaps more to follow), a clear majority of Americans - 58 percent - say marijuana should be legalized, according to new poll from Gallup.

The results mark the first time since Gallup began polling on the issue in 1969 that a majority have voiced support for marijuana legalization.

In 1969, only 12 percent supported legalization. By 2000 that number had jumped to 31 percent. And while support has generally increased steadily over time, it seems to have jumped dramatically since 2012, when only 48 percent of respondents supported legalization.
