81 percent? that’s a lot.

According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll:

Eight in 10 Americans support legalizing marijuana for medical use and nearly half favor decriminalizing the drug more generally, both far higher than a decade ago.

If that many people really want medical marijuana, and half as many really want decriminalization (or legalizing) why do so few politicians use it as part of their platform? Obviously, it is an important issue to the voting public.

I dunno. I’d prefer to see de-legislation, that is no laws concerning it at all. Of course, I’d scrap most of the laws in existence because I just don’t like paternalistic authoritarian bullshit.
