A new Quinnipiac University poll released  in 2013 shows a majority of people favor legalizing marijuana, with younger voters strongly supportive of such a policy. Overall, 51 percent of voters think the use of marijuana should be made legal in the United States, while just 44 percent oppose legalization. Two-thirds of voters under age 30 think it should be legal, but only 35 percent of those 65 and older agree. A total of 20 states and the District of Columbia have so far passed laws allowing some degree of medical use of marijuana (10 of the 20 by majority vote of the citizens). Under the circumstances, there is no reason to not legalize marijuana in New York. Indeed, the facts say most people act like marijuana is legalized. A newly created Committee called “The New York State Committee To Legalize Marijuana” said it is dedicated to getting cannabis legalized and regulated like Alcohol and Cigarettes in New York State.

      Our state stands to gain a whole lot of untapped tax revenue from legalizing and regulating pot. Alcohol is legal and way more dangerous anyways.

      Marijuana has helped me through depression anxiety and anger problems. This is not a drug but a plant. There is no reason marijuana should be illegal. This is the land of the free but yet we get arrested for using the most unharmful plant that the world has to offer.

      I have a number of body injuries that has rendered meet in constant pain. I am NOT eligible for pain medication because in my record it has a suicide attempt. I refuse to bUy pain medication in the streets. But I have found that marijuana does Help some of the pain from time to time. By legalizing marijuana it would allow me to seek that remedy and prevent mefrom performing an illegal act by buying it in the streets. thank you signed Gerard
