Timeline of U.S. polls on marijuana legalization

Above timeline of polls is from this article:

Latest Gallup Poll Shows Only 2-in-5 Americans Oppose Marijuana Legalization. October 21, 2015.

In the 1970s several states decriminalized cannabis. Support for marijuana reform temporarily declined after Reagan and others (mostly Republicans) escalated the propaganda war on cannabis in the late 1970s. It escalated dramatically during Reagan's 1980 election campaign, with cooperation from many other fanatic anti-cannabis Republicans throughout the 1980s. See: Reagan's war on cannabis. Text about Reagan was added to the above graph of polls.

Ronald Reagan, 1980 campaign speech 1: "Leading medical researchers are coming to the conclusion that marijuana, pot, grass, whatever you want to call it, is probably the most dangerous drug in the United States, and we haven't begun to find out all of the ill effects, but they are permanent ill effects. The loss of memory for example."
See Reagan say it at 1 minute 7 seconds into this video clip narrated by Woody Harrelson.
