Fifty-two percent of Americans say the use of marijuana should be made legal,while 45 percent say it should not,according to a Pew Research Center survey conducted in March among 1,501 adults. People aged 18 to 32 are the most supportive group,but half of baby boomers now favor legalizing marijuana,too. Fewer Americans now perceive marijuana as a gateway drug,and fewer say that smoking marijuana is morally wrong. The survey also shows about 72 percent believe government efforts to enforce marijuana laws cost more than they are worth. In November,Colorado and Washington state voted to approve the recreational use of small amounts of marijuana. Justine Saying
