Higher than ever, a new Quinnipiac poll released on 4/20 indicates America’s recently surveyed electorate overwhelmingly supports the idea of legalizing marijuana in the United States.
Broken down along several demographics, the poll surveyed 1,062 voters from April 12 – April 18. Primarily inquiring how voters felt about the Trump Administration during its first 100 days in office, the survey also asked if:
“The use of marijuana should be made legal in the U.S.?”
Of those surveyed, 60% felt that marijuana should be legalized in the U.S., with 73% opposing any federal intervention against states that have voted to legalize medical or recreational marijuana.
In many instances, the poll largely underscores the growing chasm between President Trump’s decisions and public opinion.
Marijuana’s Schedule 1 status is also high on the list of things most Americans want to see changed, with 76% of those surveyed believing that marijuana should be reclassified from a Schedule 1 narcotic.
