According to a Gallup poll, the highest percentage ever of Americans are now in favor of legalizing marijuana. Two-thirds of Americans are now in support of cannabis legislation.
Gallup’s new survey was released on Monday and showed that 66% are in favor of ending cannabis prohibition compared to 32% who are against it.
This is now the third year in a row that the poll has revealed record breaking support for the drug’s legislation.
The first poll from Gallup was in 1969 and only 12% said they were in favor. Last year the number was 64%.
Republican support has also climbed with 53 percent backing legal marijuana this year as compared to 51 percent in 2017.
