National news outlets this week reported on a significant change in Americans' views on a touchy subject.
For the first time, a poll says a majority of Americans favor decriminalizing the possession and use of marijuana.
That's giving the activists in Show Me Cannabis Regulation new hope that they can change drug laws here. Executive Director John Payne makes the case for legalizing the drug.
ACT Missouri (a drug abuse prevention organization) is against that idea. Sgt. Jason Grellner offers this week's counterpoint and argues for keeping the illegal drugs illegal.
