Support for marijuana legalization increased again over the past year, according to a new survey from the Pew Research Center.
In the poll of about 1,750 people administered in late September, 62 percent of Americans said they agreed that cannabis should be legal. That’s a one point bump since the last time the center polled on marijuana, roughly a year ago in October 2017.
And, opposition continued to decline at an even greater rate than support increased. Only 34 percent said that marijuana should remain illegal, compared to 37 percent who said the same last year.
