Unprecedented approval popularity and record approval popularity for legal cannabis
The 2020 Gallup poll showed that seven in ten Americans support the legal use of adult marijuana. Support was extended to all age groups, income levels and education levels for the first time. There is currently no statistical difference between 7% of American adults and 10% of adults last year. However, nominally this is Gallup's highest score, exceeding the 64% to 66% range between 1968 and 66.
Gallup first assessed public perceptions of legalization in 1969. At the time, 12% of Americans supported legalization. By 1977, the approval rate had more than doubled to 28%. By 30 years, this proportion has not exceeded 2000%, but in the following 20 years, this proportion has risen sharply, and is now twice that of 2001 and 2003
The latest data comes from a survey. The election took place between 30th and 15th, and the election put forward proposals to legalize marijuana in multiple states. Voters in all these states, Arizona, Montana, New Jersey and South Dakota, authorized the legal use of recreational marijuana in the March 11 election. Together with 33 other states and the District of Columbia, they legalized entertainment venues. In addition, voters in Mississippi and South Dakota are joining six states and the District of Columbia to pass laws to legalize or legalize the use of medical marijuana.
