Drugs, Guns, and the Fiscal Cliff: Emily Ekins on New Reason-Rupe Poll


A majority of Americans across the political spectrum do not believe the federal government should arrest people who use, grow, or sell marijuana in states that have legalized it. A majority thinks adults should be allowed to own assault weapons. Two-thirds oppose raising the debt ceiling.

Those are just some of the findings of the latest Reason-Rupe Poll, which surveyed Americans on a wide variety of issues. Full results of the poll are online here.

Reason Foundation Polling Director Emily Ekins recently sat down with Reason TV to highlight a few of the poll's discoveries.

Approximately 2 minutes long.
