Millennials are Marijuana Legalization’s Strongest Supporters

Marijuana legalization is highly polarized by age. In the most recent Quinnipiac University poll, 82 percent of Millennials favored legalization compared to 63 percent of the public overall and only 43 percent of people 65 years old and older.

Of the demographic and political groups reported, only Republicans (33% yes, 62% no) and persons 65 years old or over (43% yes, 52% no) opposed legalization. But among supporters, people aged 18 to 34 years old were the most supportive – 82 percent in support.

The demographic characteristics of supporters and opponents of legalization will be one of the topics at the May 15 American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) and Crossley Center for Public Opinion Research at the University of Denver panel will consider.

Only GOPers and Old Farts are against it.
