Over six in ten US adults support legalizing marijuana nationwide, according to a pair of recently released public opinion polls first reported by MarijuanaMoment.net.

According to a new Fox News survey of registered voters, 63 percent of respondents endorse “legalizing the recreational use of marijuana on a national level.” The total represents an increase in public support of four percentage points since the last time Fox polled the issue in 2018.

A second just-released poll, conducted by NPR/PBS and the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, reported that 62 percent of US adults believe that “legalizing marijuana nationally” is a “good idea.”

The poll results are consistent with those of other recent national surveys — including those conducted by Gallup, the Public Religion Research Institute, Pew, and Axios — all showing greater than 60 percent public support in favor of legalizing cannabis.

Commenting on the results, NORML’s Political Director Justin Strekal said: “This holiday season, Americans are more likely than ever to agree in favor of legalizing marijuana when the topic comes up at the dinner table. With a public majority mandate, now is our time to demand ending prohibition in advance of the 2020 elections.”
