California’s support for marijuana has grown rapidly according to a new state ballot.
A survey of 1,706 residents showed that over 55% wanted the substance to be legal, the highest approval rating since the survey began in 2010.
The results also show that younger residents are more likely to say yes to pot, as opposed to older adults, and that adults who don’t have kids are more likely to imbibe than those with children.
Washington DC, Washington State, Colorado and Alaska have all legalized recreational pot and Oregon has passed a law that will legalize the substance in July.
California approved medical marijuana in 1996, and now nearly two-dozen states have done the same, while 18 have decriminalized the substance.
