CASTLETON, Vt. - A majority of Vermonters support the idea of making marijuana legal. This comes from a survey conducted by Castleton's Polling Institute.

Fifty-seven percent said they're fine with taxing the drug and regulating it, similar to alcohol.

The survey polled a little more than 600 Vermonters.

The Vermont legislature approved a bill last month that would look at the potential impact of legalizing marijuana in the state.
