According to a new survey this week conducted by Harvard-Harris, 86% of Americans agree that marijuana should be legalized in some form.
In the survey, 57% believe society would be better and 69% believe legal weed wouldn’t be a problem to them.
So far the drug is legalized in 29 states and Washington D.C.
When asked if weed should only be legalized for medical uses, 37% agreed. 49% said it should be legal for both medical and recreational uses.
“Voters point to drugs as the major source of crime and support tough sentences for drug dealers but view marijuana in a wholly different light,” said co-director of the survey, Mark Penn.
“Most think legalization of marijuana would probably be helpful in reducing crime and almost half support legalization.”
