What we do know about these marijuana legalization initiatives is that the so-called War On Drugs is not nearly popular today, especially with Gen-Xers (my generation) and people who are younger. As well as let's say aging, hippie, Baby Boomers from the 1960s and 70s.
During the 1970s and 80s when the Nixon Administration and later the Reagan Administration launched major campaigns against illegal narcotics in America, it was popular to be in favor of the so-called War On Drugs. But not with young adults today, which why we might see Americans vote to legalize or decriminalize marijuana in multiple states in 2012.
