Grassroots Federalism

The American people are nearly evenly divided on whether marijuana should be legal, according to the Gallup Poll.  (Article by Frank Newport here; questions and data here.  Caption on the data file is incorrect.)  The "no" is slightly above the "yes" at 50-48, within the 95% confidence interval for sampling error.

On the question of whether the federal government should enforce its prohibition in states where marijuana is legal under state law, the result is overwhelmingly against (64-34).  Among people who oppose legalization generally, 43% nonetheless oppose the feds overriding the state's choice.
