CivicScience, an online polling data company, released a broad new survey at the beginning of the month. The survey shows that a majority of American adults continue to support marijuana legalization in the United States, and that support appears to be growing.
The survey asked more than 450,000 U.S. adults over the last two years this question: “Would you support or oppose a law in your state that would legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana like alcohol?”
Fifty-eight percent of respondents said they support marijuana legalization. Including 39 percent saying they “strongly support” and 19 percent saying they “somewhat support” reformed marijuana laws in their states.
Also, thirty-five percent oppose legalization of marijuana. Among that 35 percent, 29 percent “strongly” opposed and 6 percent “somewhat” opposed laws that would regulate marijuana like alcohol.
Furthermore, seven percent of respondents had no opinion on the issue. And in a Stoned Girls random survey, we concluded that all those opposed are lame.
According to the chairman of Marijuana Majority, Tom Angell, “This huge poll is yet another indication that marijuana legalization is officially a mainstream issue.” This isn’t the first recent poll to show a majority of Americans supporting marijuana legalization.
In April, a survey from PEW found that 54 percent of Americans support legalizing marijuana use. Also, about three-quarters of Americans told Pew that if marijuana use isn’t legalized, those found in possession of small amounts of the substance should not go to jail. Just last year, Gallup found for the first time that a clear majority of Americans, 58%, say marijuana should be legalized.
