Poll: 63 Percent of Adults Support “Legalizing Marijuana on a National Level”

Marijuana Poll Supports Legalization

New York, NY: More than six in ten US adults believe that the personal use of cannabis ought to be legal in every state in the country, according to nationwide polling data compiled by Survey Monkey and the news portal Axios.

Sixty-three percent of respondents said that they support "legalizing the recreational use of marijuana on a national level." Eighty-seven percent of respondents said that they support "allowing adults to legally use marijuana for medical purposes." Both percentages are consistent with other recent national surveys.

Though nearly two-thirds of respondents favored legalization, only about one-quarter of those surveyed expressed interest in using marijuana themselves.
