A new poll from the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) finds 55 percent of likely voters in the state support cannabis legalization. The Associated Press has more:
Pollsters said support for legalizing marijuana among all adults is at its highest point since the survey began asking the question in May 2010. According to the poll, younger residents, those ages 18 to 34, are more likely than older adults to say marijuana use should be legal. Adults without children are likely to favor legalization, while most parents with kids are opposed. Among racial groups, blacks most strongly favored legalization, at 69 percent, while Asians were hesitant, with more than half opposing legalization.
