Do You Still Doubt U.S.’s Desire For Pot

Do You Still Doubt U.S.’s Desire For Pot

The Fox News poll for the first time finds more than half (51 percent) favor legalizing marijuana, while 44 percent oppose it.

It’s one thing when marijuana activists hijack an unscientific poll on Fox News pundit Bill O’Reilly’s personal website, as they did in July 2014.

It’s something else entirely when the conservative 24-hour news network scientifically polls 1,012 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) with a margin of sampling error of +/- 3 percentage points and finds that — get this — America really does want legal cannabis.

From Fox News’ April 2015 poll:

For the first time, the Fox News poll finds more than half (51 percent) favor legalizing marijuana, while 44 percent oppose it. That’s little changed from last year when it was 50-43 percent (January 2014).

In 2013, the same poll showed a different picture: 46 percent wanted legalization while 49 percent opposed.

As common as it’s been to see major polls showing support for legalization, reform advocate Tom Angell says it’s “particularly sweet” to see these results coming from Fox News.

“It’s becoming less and less exciting whenever new polls show majority support for legalization, since they pretty much all do these days,” said Angell, chairman of advocacy group Marijuana Majority. “But that’s a good thing, and it’s pretty safe to say that marijuana reform is now officially at the forefront of mainstream American politics.

“That said, I do have to admit it is particularly sweet to see the Fox News poll now reaching the tipping point of majority support.”

While the poll’s results are somewhat surprising, considering the source, the poll’s demographic break-down isn’t.

By a 15 percentage-point margin, voters under 35 (54 percent) are more likely than those 65+ (39 percent) to favor legalizing marijuana. And by a 10-point margin, men (56 percent) are more likely than women (46 percent) to favor it.

Majorities of Democrats (62 percent) and independents (53 percent) support legalizing marijuana, while a majority of Republicans opposes it (59 percent).

But Angell said some of the polling data on conservative voters’ attitudes toward legalization works for reform advocates’ agendas.

“While we still have a ways to go in getting more conservatives on board with full legalization, it’s very helpful for our Congressional efforts to be able to point to numbers showing that big majorities of Republicans at least support medical cannabis and the notion of letting states set their own marijuana policies without federal interference.”

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the

    , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem
    to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting
    issue or something to do with browser compatibility but
    I thought I’d post to let you know. The design and style look
    great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Kudos

    I had to ask. Does managing a well-established website such as yours take a lot of work?
    I am completely new to running a blog but I do write in my journal everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and feelings online.

    Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring
    blog owners. Thankyou!

    Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to
    know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
