Carbondale, IL–(ENEWSPF)–March 30, 2017. Sixty-six percent of voters believe that the adult use and sale of marijuana ought to be treated like alcohol, according to statewide polling data compiled by the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at Southern Illinois University.

Support for legalization is strongest among voters under 35 years of age (83 percent) and among Democrats (77 percent). However, majorities of respondents in every age demographic and of every political ideology endorse regulating the cannabis market.

The poll results come just days after state lawmakers introduced legislation in the Illinois House and Senate to legalize the plant’s use, production, and retail sale.
