A majority of U.S. voters support legalizing marijuana in general, and nearly nine in 10 say VA doctors should be able to prescribe it in pill form to veterans suffering post-traumatic stress disorder, according to polling released Monday.

Fifty-four percent said marijuana should be made legal in the United States, compared to 41 percent who said it should not be, according to the Quinnipiac poll.

More than 60 percent of Democrats and independents favor legalization, while 62 percent of Republicans are opposed.

Six in 10 men favor legalization, while women favor it by a narrower 48 percent to 46 percent margin. “The fact that a majority of American voters favors legalizing marijuana in general shows how attitudes about the drug have changed,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
