Men feel the need: the need for weed. But why don't women? At least relatively speaking.
Conservative law prof. Ann Althouse, at her appropriately titled blog "Althouse," ponders
the gender gap in attitudes toward marijuana legalization. She points to a Quinnipiac University poll
that found men were 59% in support of pot legalization, while their female counterparts were only 44% in favor.
That's a fairly blunt difference.
"Care to speculate on what that gender difference is about?" Althouse asks, with one such speculation being provided
by libertarian blogger Julie Borowski, who says that compared to women, men are prone to embracing weird, bizarre and marginal movements - like those enamored of the idea of legalizing currently prohibited drugs.
"Compared to men, women tend to be more social and care more about what people think about them," writes Borowski. "Men tend to be less social and their interests more obscure."
