A Yahoo report, "Weed and the American Family" says American families are becoming more acceptable of marijuana.

In the report, Yahoo says that 54% of people surveyed admit to using marijuana and 51% say they use it regularly. Those numbers point toward the stigma around pot changing and with laws softening on the drug, it's safe to assume that more people will open up to the idea of recreational use.

The study even has stats that say people now find marijuana less dangerous than both tobacco and alcohol.
