The Partnership for A Drug-Free America — a government-funded Drug War advocacy group — is backing away from supporting the arrest of 800,000 Americans every year for marijuana.
The 28 year-old New York group of advertising executives funded by major alcohol, tobacco, nicotine and pharmaceutical interests released a new survey this week called “Marijuana: It’s Legal, Now What?” Now, we don’t trust anything coming from a bunch of failed “this is your brain on drugs” propagandists, but we’re intrigued when they admit:
- “It’s clear that society’s views on marijuana are evolving dramatically,” said Steve Pasierb, CEO of The Partnership.
- 40 percent of adults polled in the partnership’s new survey favor ending the failed prohibition on marijuana.
- 70 percent support medical marijuana.
