Sixty percent of voters were in favor of making marijuana use legal and 34 percent were opposed, the Hamden-based university said Thursday.

Alex Newcombe, a 31-year-old who says he uses marijuana to help his anxiety, said he is disappointed by the Liberal legislation introduced last week. Eighty-eight percent favor medical marijuana use. Of those surveyed, 49% said they think legalizing weed won't have any effect on violent crime, while 22% said they think legalizing marijuana will actually reduce violent crime. Pot remains illegal in the eyes of the federal government, which classifies it the same as heroin. Attorney General Jeff Sessions ― who has stated his personal opposition to weed ― has anxious some marijuana advocates with ominous comments about the supposed dangers of loosening restrictions on the nation's favorite illicit substance.

QU said that is "also the highest level of support in any national poll".
That cannabis is growing in popularity is not particularly surprising, especially because each election, more states choose to legalize the plant in either medical or recreational forms.
"The people have been pretty clear that this is something they don't want the federal government to interfere with", said Democratic Rep. Earl Blumenauer of OR, one of the signees and sponsor of the amendment, during a press call Wednesday. GOPers were split 46/49 on legalizing weed in CBS's data, tantalizingly close to majority support.
