73% of Americans Support Legalization of Medical Marijuana

Nearly three-quarters of Americans say they would support the legalization of medical marijuana in their state, according to a new poll by the Pew Research Center.
The survey found that 73% of Americans said they favour medical cannabis legalization, while 23% were opposed. The Pew Research Center also found that 41% of the public supports full legalization for recreational use, with 52% opposed.
As is usually the case when it comes to marijuana issues, younger people are more likely to favour legalization that older Americans, but a majority across all ages shows majority support for the idea. According to the study, Conservative Republicans are least likely to support the measure, but still show 54% in support.
