63% of libertarians believe marijuana prohibition will be over within 10 years

Libertarian Party calls for marijuana legalizationOf the 3,930 poll-takers who visited LP.org between Oct. 29 and Nov. 13, 63 percent believe that marijuana prohibition in the United States will be history within 10 years.

34 percent of those surveyed believe it will end within five years, including the 11 percent of respondents who believe it will be over within two years.

The closing down of the government's failed and dangerous War on Marijuana — a substance that has a range of beneficial medical and industrial uses — is evidence that:

  1. State sovereignty can prevail over federal policies that violate the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution.
  2. Decades-long, seemingly hopeless battles for liberty can eventually be won — and are well worth the fight.

Here are the final survey results:
