Nearly 90% of Americans Are Now in Favor of Legalizing Marijuana

cannabis plant eraoflightdotcomNearly 90 percent of Americans are in favor of legalizing marijuana, according to a September study conducted by Pew Research. As Statista’s Maria Vultaggio notes, at 69 percent of approval, marijuana legalization was most common among 18 to 29-year-olds.

At 12 percent, it was least common among Republicans.

On January 2, the governor of Kansas said she would likely sign a bill to legalize marijuana. Though Governor Laura Kelly wouldn’t advocate for the bill, she’s not opposed to it.

“I haven’t really decided what I would do. This is something where what the people want is probably more what I will want on something like that,” Kelly told WIBW.

“I don’t have a personal ideology regarding it. If the folks want it and the legislature passes it, would I sign it? Probably.”

Currently, recreational marijuana is legal in Alaska, California, Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont, Washington and the District of Columbia.
