QU Poll shows support for legalization of marijuana at 'highest levels'

The government legislation did not offer any specifics on tax measures for marijuana. In fact, the number has increased by five points from a year ago, bringing it up to the highest percentage ever recorded on the CBS poll.

Support for marijuana legalization has risen among all age groups, particularly those under 55.

While recreational marijuana can be consumed, possessed and cultivated in their homes by adults 21 and over in the Bay State, events like shuttle tours to dispensaries or other pot-friendly places might be a long time coming.

A rise in the use of medical marijuana has spurred a debate about organ transplantation, and it's changing some laws across the nation. Doing so would seem to be an unpopular move, according to the poll results which show than only 20 percent of Americans thought the Trump administration's enforcement actions should be tougher than the Obama administration's for medical marijuana and 30 percent for recreational use. Only a majority of those respondents over the age of 65 did not support legalization.

"We are pleased that we were able to get this bill tabled in the House", she said in an interview.

Sixty-one percent of those polled believe that the drug should be legalized for recreational use.

Under the proposed Cannabis Act, it would remain illegal to import cannabis and cannabis products, and to export them without a valid permit.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has asserted a connection between marijuana and violent crime, but few Americans see it that way: just 23 percent think legalizing pot increases violent crime, while almost as many think legal marijuana decreases it.

But, as we know, laws without enforcement amount to a toothless tiger, so the government has to make provisions to effectively deal with the new reality of legal pot.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly recently called marijuana "a potentially unsafe gateway drug that frequently leads to the use of harder drugs" — a view long held by drug warriors despite scant evidence of its validity. What's more, a vast majority of people - 88% - are in favor of medical marijuana.

More than 60 per cent of respondents said they were in favour of the government's Cannabis Act proposed on April. 13, but two-thirds believed a successfully enacted legislation would not deter young people from increasing their marijuana consumption. I'm not so sure. If you want to grow your own, check local laws first, because they vary from state to state. If they're forced to choose between defending Trump on the one hand, though, and siding with his pro-pot critics on the other, it wouldn't surprise me if they shift a bit against legalization.
