Poll: Majority Of Delaware Residents Favor Legalizing Marijuana

Newark, DE: The majority of Delaware residents favor legalizing the use of marijuana by adults, according to statewide polling data released last week by the University of Delaware, Center for Political Communication.

Fifty-six percent of respondents agreed with the statement, "The use of marijuana should be legal." Thirty-nine percent of those polled disagreed with the position.

Opposition was strongest among those aged 60 or older. Among all other age groups, a substantial majority of respondents backed legalization.

Recent statewide polls in various states, including Connecticut, Georgia, New York, and Texas, show similar public support for regulating marijuana use by adults.

The University of Delaware poll possesses a margin of error of +/- 3.9 percentage points.
