According to an Emerson College poll released this week, a solid majority of voters in Arizona are in favor of the state legalizing marijuana for adults.
“When voters were asked about legalization of marijuana, 53% approve and 39% disapprove”, states the poll. “Democrats (66%) and Independents (62%) are in strong support for legalization, while only 32% of Republicans support legalization, 61% oppose.”
Legalization was particularly popular among those 18 to 34 years old, with 65% in support and just 20% opposed. Specifically, polling participants were asked: “There is an initiative for the legalization of marijuana for adults 21 and over in Arizona. Do you support legalizing marijuana for adults 21 and over?”
