New polling shows strong support for legalizing marijuana in Germany.
A new poll conducted by Mafo, a research firm, and commissioned by Playboy Deutschland, has found that a strong majority of German adults support the idea of legalizing marijuana.
According to the poll, 57.5% of German residents support the legalization of marijuana for adults, including allowing them to purchase the plant from retail outlets. 90.5% of the poll’s respondents stated that they believe the country’s current laws don’t work at preventing cannabis from being consumed.
Roughly 30% of those involved in the poll have consumed marijuana, considerably less than the nearly 50% of Americans who have consumed the plant at least once in their lives.
When it comes to “hard drugs” like cocaine and heroin, support for legalization is drastically lower, with 92.9% opposed to making these substances legal.
