Table: Marijuana Legalization Demographics

Support for legalization of marijuana has grown from 12% of the American public thinking the plant should be legal in 1969 to 68% this year, according to Gallup, which has been tracking the question for that long.

Indeed, voters passed legalization measures in all five states that had the issue on the ballot this year.

Though President-Elect Joe Biden has been reluctant to embrace full legalization, the crisis the nation is facing in funding state goverments in the wake of the pandemic may force the issue.

If you support legalization, you are more likely to be younger, more educated, wealthier, and less likely to be a Republican or conservative nor to attend weekly religious services.
