Public support for legalizing marijuana reached its highest point this year, according to a new poll released by Gallup.
Fort-two percent support legalization, with 56% opposed. At the current rate of growth, 1–2% a year, support could go over 50% in as little as four years.
PRINCETON, NJ — Gallup’s October Crime poll finds 44% of Americans in favor of making marijuana legal and 54% opposed. U.S. public support for legalizing marijuana was fixed in the 25% range from the late 1970s to the mid-1990s, but acceptance jumped to 31% in 2000 and has continued to grow throughout this decade.
