On Friday, even more evidence that most Americans no longer support marijuana prohibition was released.
Washington Post reports:

Many researchers and public health experts have been encouraging the UN to take a less-punitive approach to drug policy. Yesterday, a group of medical and public health experts urged governments to decriminalize all drug use and experiment with regulated drug markets in some cases.
