New Poll Shows Americans Overwhelmingly Support Legalizing Marijuana

According to new nationwide polling from the Pew Research Center, eighty-nine percent of Americans say that marijuana ought to be legal for either medical or adult use.

Fifty-nine percent of respondents said that cannabis should be legal for adults, while an additional 30 percent said that it should be legal explicitly for therapeutic purposes. Both findings are consistent with prior Pew polls.




In Florida, medical marijuana is legal but Governor Ron DeSantis and the Republican legislature still have not pushed for legalization for adults – even though they tout Florida as a  model “free” state.

Adult-use legalization was most popular among Democrats (73%), those ages 18 to 29 (72%), and African Americans (68%). Older respondents and Republicans were least likely to express support.

By contrast, broad majorities of Republicans and older Americans favor the legalization of medical marijuana. Perhaps that is why Florida is stuck missing out on even more tax dollars and more freedom. Maybe it will change as the polling and political trends continue to favor legalization.
