WASHINGTON D.C.- A new poll released by the Gallup polling firm Tuesday found a majority of Americans favor legalizing marijuana, a first since the question was originally asked in 1969.

The poll found 58% of Americans say the drug should be legalized while 39% opposed legalization. 

Support for marijuana legalization has drastically improved since 1969, when only 12% of Americans supported legalization. 

Earlier this year another Gallup poll found 38% of Americans admitted to trying the drug.
