66% of Americans Support Legalizing Marijuana, Gallup Poll Finds
(Alcohol, Cannabis, District of Columbia, Growing, Legalization, Michigan, North Dakota, Northern Mariana Islands, United States, Cultivation) A new Gallup poll released on Oct 22 shows support for making marijuana legal in the U.S. has reached a record high of 66%, up from 64% last year. Only 32% are opposed. The poll found majority support spans the political spectrum, with majorities of Democrats, Republicans, and independents in favor, the MPP noted. Support among Republicans grew to 53%, up from 51% last year, with opposition dropping to just 45%. Approximately two out of three voters support legalization in each of the four major geographic regions of the country.

State Legal Cannabis in 2018: Status Report
(Alcohol, Cannabis, CBD, Distribution, Education, Growing, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, North Dakota, Northern Mariana Islands, Oklahoma, Recreational, Testing, United States, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Cultivation) Great progress so far in 2018. The path to marijuana public reforms is inevitable. According to recent surveys, 64 percent of Americans favor the legalization of marijuana and roughly 90 percent support its legal use for medical purposes. This growing popularity of cannabis has been reflected in recent legislative and referendum actions across the country at the state level. Earlier this year, shortly after Vermont legalized, we looked at four states–New Jersey, Oklahoma, Michigan, and Virginia–most likely to follow the footsteps of the existing 9 states that had already passed laws to regulate marijuana and the 28 with medical cannabis programs. Today, on the eve of the November 6 elections, we take another look at the legislative and/or referendum developments in these jurisdictions and see whether these four states have in fact come closer to ending marijuana prohibition. New Jersey New Jersey’s governor, Phil Murphy, has made legalizing, regulating, and taxing marijuana a goal of...
