Take a look at the three polls released on the topic in 2021:
Nearly two-thirds of New Jersey voters support legalizing the adult use of marijuana and expunging past criminal convictions associated with the substance, according to statewide polling data released today by Quinnipiac University.
Sixty-two percent of voters say that they support allowing adults “to legally possess small amounts of marijuana for personal use.” Support is strongest among voters ages 18 to 34 years of age (90 percent) and Democrats (78 percent). Support was weakest among Republicans (41 percent) and those voters over the age of 65 (46 percent).
New Jersey voters are on board with ending cannabis prohibition by a margin of 62 percent to 33 percent, a new poll shows. That includes strong majorities of Democrats, independents, men, women, whites, nonwhites and every age group except those older than 65.
A whopping 90 percent of voters between the ages of 18 and 34 support cannabis legalization.
A separate question in the new Quinnipiac University survey, released on Wednesday, finds that voters support “erasing criminal records for marijuana possession,” 63 percent to 27 percent.
Marijuana sales are expected to net the state $300 million annually in tax revenue. Why wait? Remember, while you pause before agreeing, those speed bumps in your mind are merely fiction. On the whole, DUI rates and fatal car crashes in states where marijuana is legal are declining, according to a report by the Drug Policy Alliance. After marijuana was legal to sell in their states, a Colorado Department of Public Safety report showed a 6 percent decrease in the violent crime rate statewide from 2009 to 2014, and Washington decreased by 10 percent from 2011 to 2014.
People overwhelmingly want marijuana to be legal in the Garden State, a new poll finds.
New Jersey voters support ending cannabis prohibition by a margin of 59 percent to 37 percent in Quinnipiac University survey released Tuesday.
The poll also found that voters tend to think alcohol is more harmful than cannabis.
Only 10 percent said marijuana is the more dangerous substance, while 39 percent said it is less harmful than alcohol. Another 48 percent said the two are equally dangerous.
