New from Pew:

[D]rawing on trends from Gallup and the General Social Survey – support for legalizing marijuana has never been higher. Young people under the age of 30 favor legalizing the use of marijuana by a 54%-42% margin. Opinion is divided among those in middle age groups. Those 65 and older are broadly opposed to legalization (66% illegal, 30% legal).
