Poll: Older Citizens Support Medical Pot

A new poll by the AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) shows that 72% of citizens over age 45 support the use of marijuana for medical purposes. Curiously, though, 74% believed marijuana is addictive. Geography was a factor:

Over all, 72 percent of respondents agreed "adults should be allowed to legally use marijuana for medical purposes if a physician recommends it." Those in the Northeast (79 percent) and West (82 percent) were more receptive to the idea than in the Midwest (67 percent) and Southwest (65 percent). In Southern states, 70 percent agreed with the statement.
