It's the Chronic - what? - Polls of Zobgy!

Nearly Half of Americans want to let states legally regulate and tax marijuana the way they do liquor and gambling. Zogby International
will pimp there services to just about anyone these days, including NORML
for a poll on American's attitudes towards pot. According to the poll 65% of 18-29 year olds and 50% of 50-64 year-olds are cool with weed being legal and controlled like booze. The former slackers of Generation X
, 30-49 year-olds, oppose it by 58% and the geezers over 65 oppose it by only 52%.
The pool shows some interesting generational attitudes. Is the 30-49 age group still following Nancy Reagan's "Just Say No
" mantra or is this the attitude of parents worried about their kids? I thought these folks were supposed to be the slacker generation, and now they're the strongest opponents to legalization.
