    May seem like a simple number, but it’s very big.

    New Gallup Poll

    58% of Americans favor legalizing marijuana

    39% oppose


    That’s a 19% differential.

    Tipping point passed.

    A poll released today by the Gallup organization finds 58% of Americans favor legalizing marijuana. It’s the first time a clear majority has favored legalization since Gallup started asking the question in 1969.

    The finding is remarkable because, these days, it’s hard to find much of anything that 58% of Americans like.

    I went back and looked through some other Gallup polls this year to find questions where more than 58% of the public took the affirmative position. Legal marijuana isn’t as popular as universal gun background checks (83%) or legal sodomy (64%). But it’s more popular than almost everything else.

    More Americans want to legalize marijuana than think President Obama is doing a good job (44%), want to keep or expand Obamacare (38%), favored attacking Syria (36%), support a 20-cent gas tax increase to pay for infrastructure (29%), or like the Republican Party (28%).

    And legal marijuana has more than five times as many supporters as Congress does (11%).

    The idea for MagicalButter® was born over a few beers while watching football with friends. One of my friends has Crohn’s disease, and he told me traditional medicines had not been working for him. He had read online that herbs might help certain patients with Crohn’s disease. He tried to inhale and even vaporizing herbs, but felt that smoking was unhealthy. He tried to cook his herbs but failed. My brain pondered how I could help him. My first attempt involved redesigning a double boiler specifically for butters and oils. It was a cool new design, but far too much work to be a viable solution. I then modified a Crock Pot to have a stirring spoon rotating from the lid. It was a good solution, but still too cumbersome. One cold Florida night, while staring aimlessly into the fire, I designed the MagicalButter machine. My design was a device to automate the cooking process, and voilà, MagicalButter was born. continued
