A new poll conducted by Gallup shows that over 50% of Americans support the legalization of marijuana.

The poll, which was conducted from September 30 to October 15, surveyed 1,033 adults from all 50 states and Washington D.C. The results showed that 68% of adults under the age of 30 supported legalization, while 58% of adults aged 30-49 were in favor. The majority of older American adults were opposed, with only 35% of those aged 65 and over supporting legalization.

While support for legalizing marijuana has been steadily increasing over the years, this latest poll marks a new high. In 1969, only 12% of Americans supported legalization.

These findings come amidst ongoing debates on marijuana legalization across the country. Currently, 11 states and the District of Columbia have legalized cannabis for recreational use, and 33 states have legalized it for medical use.

The poll also found that 51% of Americans have personally tried marijuana, and 12% of adults currently smoke it.

Advocates for legalization argue that it could help reduce crime, boost tax revenue, and improve public health by providing a safer alternative to the black market. Opponents, on the other hand, raise concerns about drug addiction, impaired driving, and the potential for marijuana to be a gateway drug.

With over half of Americans now in favor of legalizing marijuana, it’s clear that opinions on the drug are shifting. It remains to be seen if this shift will lead to further legalization across the country.
