For instance, Montana led searches in gun control while Florida looked up Social Security more than any other state.</p><p>From <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2012/10/10/the-united-states-of-search-in-1-map/">The Fix</a>:</p><blockquote><p>The biggest surprise for us? Kentucky is the state where searches for legalization of marijuana are highest. Yes, Kentucky. One possible explanation: There is an <a href="http://www.kentucky.com/2012/07/05/2249360/medical-marijuana-proposal-named.html">effort to pass a law legalizing medicinal marijuana in the state</a>, which could generate some search interest.</p></blockquote><p> Wed, 10 Oct 2012 16:34:28 +0000 Phillip M.
