Texans want to get high, or at least that appears to be the consensus of a recent survey, which indicates that the majority of those across the Lone State support the legalization of marijuana.

According to Public Policy Polling, nearly 60-percent of Texas voters “support making marijuana legal for adults and regulating it like alcohol.” What’s more is that 61-percent agree that marijuana possession should be decriminalized and punished with civil infractions rather than jail time.

Currently, anyone caught with even a small amount of marijuana in Texas is subject to criminal prosecution, with fines up to $2,000 and a year in jail.

Rob Kampia of the Marijuana Policy Project said that most Texans would like to see marijuana sales conducted legitimately rather than being run by vicious drug cartels.

The latest PPP survey also found that the majority of Texans believe critically ill and terminally ill patients should be prescribed marijuana. In fact, only 31-percent claimed to be opposed to the idea.

“People suffering from cancer and multiple sclerosis should not face the threat of arrest for using medical marijuana if their doctors believe it will help ease their suffering,” said Kampia.

All across America, there has been an outpouring of support for marijuana legalization, with 52-percent of the population reportedly in favor of it, according to a recent Gallup Poll.
