50% of Americans Say, 'Legalize Marijuana'
Gallup Poll Shows 50% In Favor of Legalizing Weed
It's a record high: 50% of Americans, responding to a Gallup poll, have come out in favor of legalizing marijuana.
Comparing these results to the 2010 poll on the same topic, we see that legalizing weed is slightly less popular among liberals, and slightly more so among conservatives, than it was last year.
Strangely, PepsiCo (PEP), which owns the Frito-Lay brand, did not see a stock spike on the news.
The above is the result of a telephone poll conducted among 1,005 participants, wieghted for age, ethnicity, gender, and other factors. (Full marijuana poll methodology- pdf)
Note that the poll did not ask respondents whether or not it should be passed to the left or to the right.
