New Yorkers Support Marijuana Legalization
A new poll released last week shows that the majority of New Yorkers would support the legalization of non-medical marijuana throughout the state.
The Quinnipiac University poll finds that 51 percent of New Yorkers support the legalization of marijuana, while only 44 percent oppose it.
A further breakdown of the polls indicates that male support is stronger than females, 56 percent versus 47 percent. The largest age group in support of legalization is 18-29 year olds. Support begins to decrease with each subsequent age group.
Colorado and Washington voted last month to legalize marijuana for recreational use.
