58% percent of Americans now back legalizing marijuana.

According to the Huffington Post, more than half of Americans think that marijuana usage should be made legal, according to a Gallup poll released Tuesday.

Much of the new support for legalization comes among independent voters, 62 percent of whom now support it, up from just 50 percent last November. Majorities of all age groups up to age 64 also support legalization, including two-thirds of those from 18 to 29.

Other surveys have found rapidly increasing support for legalizing marijuana use. A Pew Research poll released in March found a majority supporting legalization for the first time.
