Nationwide marijuana legalization seems inevitable to three-fourths of Americans, whether they support it or not.

That's according to a new poll out Wednesday by the Pew Research Center on the nation's shifting attitudes about drug policy.
The survey also suggested that the public supports a national move away from mandatory sentences for non-violent drug offenders by a nearly 2-1 margin.
The Pew poll showed growing public acceptance of pot use. Just 15 percent said they would be bothered if people in their neighborhood used marijuana in their own homes, though 63 percent said they would be bothered by use in public.
The telephone survey of 1,821 adults was conducted Feb. 14-23. The survey had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
