In a nationwide survey conducted by YouGov.com , most Americans believe that cannabis should be legalized.
This survey, in which 52 percent of respondents, almost two-thirds of Democrats, clearly stated that its use should be legalized. There was opposition to the idea where about 34 percent of respondents did not agree with its legalization.
Among those who supported the legalization, the strongest were Democrats with a household income of more than $100,000 (66 percent) as well as African Americans (59 percent). Among those who were not in favor were Hispanics (39 percent), respondents over the age of 65 (39 percent) as well as those who identified themselves as Republicans (36 percent).
In comparison to both the United Kingdom and Germany, the United States supports the legalization of marijuana. As the numbers stand, 32 to 49 percent of the British population and 39 to 45 percent of Germans are opposed to its legalization.
Also, compared to the last poll, which took place in March 2015, there has been a marginal increase in support where the numbers in its favor stood at 48 percent.
This YouGov.com poll is the latest in a number of national polls that validates the support for the use of adult cannabis among most Americans.
