Is America Ready to Legalize Marijuana?

MSNBC poll asks readers: "Is America ready to legalize pot, regulate it, tax it, control it the same way that alcohol is controlled?"

In California, marijuana stores legally exist to sell different varieties of pot to customers that need the drug for medical purposes. One shop, for example, pays the state some $300,000 in taxes and the federal government $500,000 in taxes. One problem: DEA could shut them down and arrest the people working and selling in the store. State and Federal laws are contradictory.
