Econintersect:  More than half of all Americans think that marijuana should be legalized, according to a poll conducted by CNN and ORC International.  That sentiment, which had never before risen above 35%, surged to 43% in favor in 2012 and to 55% this month (January 2014).  With a margin of error of +/-3% a majority of Americans now believe that pot should be legal.  In October Gallup found 58% (+/- 4%) in favor of legalizing marijuana.
