Pew poll: 61 percent back legalization of pot

Source: The Hill




BY MAX GREENWOOD - 01/05/18 11:07 AM EST

Roughly six in 10 Americans think marijuana should be legalized, according to a new Pew Research survey.

Sixty-one percent of respondents said the substance should be legal. That is slightly more than the 57 percent that said so a year ago and it is representative of the steady increase in support for legalizing marijuana that has taken shape over the past decade.

Support for legalization was the highest among Millennials, at 70 percent, according to the Pew survey. They're followed by Gen Xers, 66 percent of whom support marijuana legalization, and then by Baby Boomers, at 56 percent.

Party affiliation also played a role in support for legalization. Nearly seven in 10 Democrats and 65 percent of independents support legalizing the substance. Among respondents that identify as Republicans, just 43 percent favor legalization.
