25 Million Smoke It!
President Nixon's National Commission on Marijuana will release the results of a nationwide survey this week which will report that approximately 25 million Americans have smoked marijuana.
The survey which was conducted by the prestigious Response Analysis Corporation of Princeton, New Jersey, is said to be the most comprehensive study on marijuana smoking ever undertaken in the United States. A spokesman for the Marijuana Commission told Earth News that 2000 adults and 600 young people between the ages of 13 and 17 were selected at random and interviewed. The survey concludes that approximately 15 percent of all Americans over the age of 12 have smoked grass at least once. The findings mean that better than one in every seven persons in the United States over the age of 12 has broken existing marijuana laws.
A director of the Response Analysis Corporation confirmed that the survey results are being printed this week--but declined to comment on the findings until the results are released by the Marijuana Commission in Washington
