In many parts of the United States, marijuana consumption is still not allowed; however, support for the use of this plant seems to be growing more and more. A survey revealed that three out of four U.S. voters favor ending federal cannabis prohibition or letting states decide on the policy.
The survey conducted by Hill- HarrisX, interviewed 1882 people last March 24-26, the results of the consultation showed that 38% of voters said that the federal government should legalize marijuana in the country, while 37% expressed that the policy change should be left to the states.
On the other hand, 25% of the participants said that marijuana should be illegal in all parts of the U.S. territory.
The survey also highlights that Democratic and Independent leaning participants are in favor of cannabis legalization at the federal level, with 48% and 38% respectively. Meanwhile, those identified with the Republicans expressed that decisions should be made at the state level, with 39%.
There is no doubt that the perspective on marijuana has been changing in recent years, and likewise the wave of legalization of this plant has been expanding in the North American nation, recently the state of New York legalized the use of this plant for adults over 21 years of age, and it seems that other states will follow the same path.
