Almost Two-Thirds of Young Republicans Support Marijuana Legalization: Survey

Among Republicans ages 18 to 34, almost two-thirds say they support marijuana legalization, according to a survey by the Pew Research Center. Among Republicans ages 35 to 50, almost half approve legalization, NPR reports.

The survey found 77 percent of young adult Democrats (known as Millenials), and 61 percent of those ages 35 to 50, favor legalization.

According to Pew, “The debate over marijuana also comes ahead of the 2016 presidential election, when both political parties are fighting over the coveted Millennial vote as this group of eligible voters swells in size, even if its members do not consistently show up on Election Day.”
