A new poll has discovered that a majority of people in America support letting states set their own marijuana policies, including the legalization of cannabis. The YouGov poll found that 7 in every 10 individuals who voted to elect President Joseph Biden support the nationwide legalization of cannabis, despite Biden’s opposition to the change in policy.
This survey emphasizes how unpopular cannabis prohibition is in the United States, with none of the demographics surveyed showing majority support for federal marijuana prohibition. The survey found that 25% of respondents felt that states needed to be able to decide whether or not to legalize cannabis with 45% admitting that they felt that marijuana needed to be legalized at the federal level. This figure makes up the majority of respondents who were in support of legalization.
Of those surveyed, only 17% were still in support of cannabis prohibition, with the remaining percentage still undecided on the issue. The poll also found that 78% of Democrats were in favor of legalizing marijuana federally, with 16% of this number arguing that the decision needed to be left to the states. The remainder argued that the plant needed to be legalized at the national level.
The survey also found that 23% of Republicans were in favor of national legalization while about 35% preferred that it be the states’ call. In addition to this, the poll found that more than 30% of those who identified as Republicans were in favor of federal cannabis prohibition. Of those who identified as Independent, 14% supported federal prohibition while roughly 25% were in favor of states making the decision. Additionally, the survey discovered that vast majorities of all age demographics believed that cannabis needed to be legalized, either as a state decision or across the country.
The survey also asked respondents about their coronavirus vaccination status, finding that fully vaccinated individuals who had also received their booster shots were more likely to support nationwide legalization with almost 20% preferring that it be the states’ decision. Of the number that was vaccinated without the booster, 19% were in favor of cannabis prohibition while 30% were in favor of it being the states’ choice. The survey’s findings show that support for marijuana reform was lowest among the nonvaccinated cohort.
The survey also asked questions on same-sex marriages, sex work and abortion rights. The survey involved 1,500 adults in America and was conducted May 8–10 of this year. The survey’s results show the growing popularity of cannabis reform as more states regulate marijuana and move to end its prohibition by allowing companies such as Cannabis Strategic Ventures Inc. (OTC: NUGS) to operate within the markets established.
