WIRE: New survey shows 63 percent of Americans want legal marijuana

Washington, DC — Sixty-three percent of Americans age 18 and older favor making the use of marijuana legal, according to national polling results compiled by the Public Religion Research Institute’s American Values Survey.

This percentage is the highest ever reported by the poll, and marks a 30 percent increase in public support for marijuana legalization since 2014.

The poll possesses a margin or error of +/- 2.8 percentage points.

The results come only days after separate surveys released by the Pew Research Center and by Gallup also reported that Americans’ support for legalizing marijuana is at an all-time high.
