Support for recreational marijuana legalization in Pennsylvania reaches record high, survey shows

Written by on 29 October, 2021

More and more people in the United States agree with authorities allowing adult-use cannabis, and Pennsylvania voters are no exception. According to a new survey, the percentage of support for the legalization of the plant in this state reached a record high.

That’s right, the Franklin & Marshall College survey found that 60% of Pennsylvania voters support the legalization of adult-use marijuana. That figure represents the highest level of support for the issue since the firm began surving people on the matter in 2006.

Back then, only 22% of voters said they favored legalizing cannabis. As the years have passed, support has nearly tripled.

The survey, which involved an interview with 522 registered voters, was conducted from October 18-24. This consultation comes just as several legislators intensify their efforts to have legalization enacted in the state.

Notably, a bipartisan Senate bill to end marijuana prohibition in Pennsylvania was introduced earlier this month.
