I'VE BEEN LITT UP! The Times leadership on marijuana reform is classic - here is their editorial calling for Federal legalization, and a piece with this polling data on the changing American attitude:
Seventy-eight percent of Americans thought marijuana should be illegal in 1991. That figure fell to 57 percent in 2008, according to the Pew Research Center. In 2013, for the first time in over four decades of polling on the issue, prohibition was a minority position. Fifty-two percent said they favored legalizing marijuana use; 45 percent were opposed.
So the Times editors boldly waited until the bandwagon was rolling before jumping on?
