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.
