Legal Weed Could Pass In 9 States

A sweep on Election Day could push Congress to change federal marijuana laws

Support for marijuana legalization has hit an all-time high in the U.S., according to two recent national polls, raising the possibility that legal weed could pass in all nine states where it’s on the ballot in the Nov. 8 election.

A Gallup poll released Wednesday found that public support for legal marijuana use has hit 60 percent among U.S. adults, the highest percentage of support recorded in 47 years by the polling firm. That squares with another poll released last week by Pew Research Center, which found that 57 percent of U.S. adults say marijuana use should be made legal, with just 37 percent saying it should remain illegal.
