Support for legal marijuana growing

The share of Americans who favor legalizing the use of marijuana continues to increase. Today, 57% of U.S. adults say the use of marijuana should be made legal, while 37% say it should be illegal. A decade ago, opinion on legalizing marijuana was nearly the reverse – just 32% favored legalization, while 60% were opposed. Back in 1969,84% opposed legalization.

Living in a legal weed state is awesome. I harvested my 4 legal plants from my backyard last week. They might have been cut a little early, but I wanted them in before last weekend's storms where my neighborhood got over 5 inches of rain in less than 4 days.

All summer I had to keep reminding myself that I wouldn't get in trouble over 4 7 ft tall plants in my back yard. The cops don't hassle people with weed much anymore, it's just not worth the bother. It gives me such a peace of mind to know that my simple gardening won't make me a felon.
