Arizona: Majority Of Adults Support Legalizing Marijuana For Adults

Adults Support Legalizing Marijuana For AdultsPhoenix, AZ: Fifty-six percent of Arizonans favor "legalizing the possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use," according to the findings of a Rocky Mountain Poll of 700 adults, conducted by the nonpartisan Behavior Research Center.

Support for legalization was highest among men (60 percent), self-identified Independents (72 percent), Democrats (61 percent), and those aged 35 to 53 (59 percent).

The results are similar to those of a January state survey conducted by Public Policy Polling, which reported that 59 percent of Arizonans back legalizing cannabis.

The Rocky Mountain Poll possesses a margin of error of +/- 3.8 percent.
