CBS News Poll: 53% of Americans Support Legalizing Recreational Cannabis, 84% Support Legalizing Medical Cannabis

Just legalizemeyoa week after a Pew Research Center poll found that 53% of Americans support legalizing recreational cannabis, a new CBS News poll has came to the same conclusion.

53% of respondents in the survey answered “Yes” to the question “Should marijuana use be legal?” 43% stated that they believe cannabis use should not be legal.

These numbers mark the highest level of support ever recorded by a CBS News poll for legalizing cannabis, which began asking the question over 35 years ago in 1979.

The poll also asked participants if they believe cannabis is less harmful than alcohol. 51% agreed that it is less harmful, 28% said that the two substances are equally harmful, and just 12% said they believe cannabis is more harmful than alcohol.

The survey found overwhelming support for legalizing medical cannabis, with 84% in favor

  1. I support legalizing marijuana I had 3back surgery’s and suffering from depression and could use some relief from the back pain .

  2. I am a CML LUEKEYMEA survivor. Because of the TOXIC that a airplain lets off I have a disease called luekeymea. I can not heal it with natural herbs. I have to take a pill that dr agree will help me better the THC. I DISS AGREE. THESE PILLS ARE SLOWELY HELPING BUT ALL SO KILLING ME. SLOWELY. WHY CANT I SMOKE THC. INSTEED OF POPPINGIT. I CAN NOT CONTROLL THE AAMOUNT OF THC IN MY BODY WITH THE PILLS

  3. If you legalize, you give Government Mandate of Authority over your own Endocannabinoid System.

    DON’T LEGALIZE AND GIVE THE GOVERNMENT AND BIG BUSINESS THE RIGHT TO YOUR BODIES OWN ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM…. Totally repeal Prohibition, and pass Complete and Comprehensive Decriminalization Because More Laws Creates More Criminals.

    Remove all Crime Associated. No Felony, No Misdemeanor, No Civil Infraction, No Forfeitures, No Even a 1.00 Fine/Penalty. Return Cannabis in its entirety to the disciplines of Botany and Agriculture, and Get the Hell OUT of the Way.
