Gallup polls show we're at a 40 year high approval rating for legalization:

PRINCETON, NJ -- Gallup's October Crime poll finds 44% of Americans in favor of making marijuana legal and 54% opposed. U.S. public support for legalizing marijuana was fixed in the 25% range from the late 1970s to the mid-1990s, but acceptance jumped to 31% in 2000 and has continued to grow throughout this decade.

This one on how it's going in Massachusetts, not quite 1 year after legalization:
