Illinois’ new governor delivered on a top campaign promise Tuesday by signing legislation legalizing small amounts of marijuana for recreational use, the 11th state to do so and the first to implement a comprehensive statewide cannabis marketplace designed by legislators.

"In this case, the laws are well behind public opinion."

Nearly four in 10 Americans think Cannabidiol (CBD) oils should be legally available for adults as an over-the-counter purchase while another 21% think people should only be able to buy them with a doctor's prescription.

While the majority of Americans want the legalization of cannabis now, only 16% did in 1987 and 1990, the years with the joint-lowest support.

Sixty-five percent of Americans now think marijuana should be legal — a record high in CBS News polling.

A solid majority of Americans support legalizing marijuana and expunging the records of individuals with prior convictions for cannabis possession or consumption, according to a new poll.
