AP Poll: Over Six In Ten Americans Support Legal Marijuana Use

AP Poll: Over Six In Ten Americans Support Legal Marijuana UseChicago, IL–(ENEWSPF)–April 1, 2016.  Over six in ten American adults believe that “the use of marijuana should be made legal,” according to nationwide polling data provided by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. By contrast, only seven percent of respondents supported the legalization of other illicit substances, such as cocaine.

Of those respondents who supported legalizing marijuana, 43 percent endorsed imposing regulations with regard to how the substance is sold. Thirty-three percent opposed any regulation of the plant, and 24 percent said that it should be legal, but only for medicinal purposes.

Support for amending marijuana prohibition was highest among younger adults (those age 18 to 29) and Democrats.

The AP poll possesses a margin of error of +/- 3.9 percent.
