US: Nearly One Out Of Two Americans Back Legalizing Pot, Says Latest Pew Research Poll

Friday 18 Mar 2011
Washington, DC--(ENEWSPF)--March 18, 2011. Americans' support for legalizing the adult use of marijuana has risen from 16 percent approval in 1990 to 45 percent today – according to the latest Pew Research poll, released last week.

Support rose four percent in the last year, pollsters reported.

More men than women (48 percent to 42 percent) backed legalization, as did more Democrats (53 percent) than Republicans (30 percent). Younger voters (age 18 to 29) were most likely to say that they support legalizing cannabis (54 percent), while only 30 percent of those age 65 or older supported the position.

Fifty percent of respondents said that they opposed legalizing marijuana – the lowest level of opposition support ever reported by the poll.

The findings are strikingly similar to those reported last fall by Gallup, which found that an all-time high of 46 percent of Americans support legalizing marijuana, and an all-time low of 50 percent oppose the idea.
