Marijuana has become a highly accepted legalization movement by teens across America, and now baby boomers are joining in as they return to lighting “spliffs” over enjoying a few drinks after work. Most baby boomers gave up marijuana as they ventured into their careers, but, after a wave of acceptance and legalization’s across the United States, they are taking back up the hobby and rolling one up for old times sake.
According to Pew Research, over half of baby boomers polled would like marijuana completely legalized. What does this prove?
Well, for starters, it isn’t just your average high school and college stoner that want’s to be able to smoke a joint without fear of finding themselves in the back of a cop car. Culture has changed, and so has the movement of legalizing marijuana.
A stunning 56 percent of voters worldwide are in favor of the changes, which is up 9 percent from the last poll in March of 2012, according to a Rasmussen report.
“A solid majority of voters nationwide favor legalizing and regulating marijuana similar to the way alcohol and tobacco cigarettes are currently regulated,” the report stated. “Most also don’t believe it should be a crime for people to smoke marijuana in the privacy of their own homes.”
The baby boomers’ marijuana movement is now in full affect, so don’t be surprised to see your elders rolling up, though they may be a little rusty. The Rasmussen report went on to add that only “thirty-six percent (36%) are opposed to such a legalizing and regulating pot.”
It’s safe to say changes are coming as marijuana is slowly becoming accepted throughout the nation. Adults across the United States have changed their views as well, believing that alcohol and cigarettes are more of a risk than “toking up.”
Do you agree with baby boomers as marijuana acceptance is no longer considered a mainstream meltdown?
