As sensible cannabis policy continues to trend across the land, more Americans approve of taxing and regulating pot than they do of President Obama's job performance, according to a new Rasmussen poll released May 17.

In a telephone survey of 1,000 likely voters nationwide conducted May 12 by Rasmussen Reports, the pollsters asked: "Would you favor or oppose legalizing marijuana and regulating it in the similar manner to the way alcohol and tobacco cigarettes are regulated today?"

Finding: "Fifty-six percent favor legalizing and regulating marijuana in a similar manner to the way alcohol and tobacco cigarettes are regulated. Thirty-six percent are opposed to such a legalizing and regulating pot.

The report also found that 58 percent favor selling pot in pharmacies only, and 52 percent said states should be allowed to overrule the feds on drug approval.

Says here 56 percent of Americans want us to knock it off, sir.
