This may come as a shock to you, but a new poll conducted by Quinnipiac University in Connecticut shows that most Americans don’t want the Federal government getting involved with their state mandated marijuana laws.
This news come a few days after those at the White House hinted at revisiting marijuana laws and regulations in the near future.
The majority of U.S. voters are in favor of making, and keeping, marijuana legal for both medical and recreational use. In fact, that’s about 93% of U.S. voters supporting medical marijuana use and 59% supporting recreational legalization and use.
Quinnipiac also shared that more than 70% of Americans do not want the Federal government enforcing federal laws in states where marijuana is medically and recreationally legal. Please note this number includes a mix of Republicans, Democrats, independents, representing all age groups.
The process of legalizing weed on the state level is a long and grueling one, which would take time to reenact should it be at risk. This is a shame considering more than half of U.S. voters are in favor of legalizing marijuana across the U.S.
This study conducted by Quinnipiac University included 1,323 voters nationwide and was then compared to similar data by Gallup and the Pew Research Center.
