Support for Marijuana Legalization in California Is At An All-Time High

Not this time

Californians are a demanding bunch, though they're not always exactly sure what it is they want.

Take the newly released Public Policy Institute of California Poll. The poll takes the state's temperature on a host of issues, including fracking (we want it regulated), Gov. Jerry Brown (Democrats like him, Republicans not so much), and, of course, marijuana.

National polls reveal a majority support for legalizing marijuana, and the state results are no different. On the cannabis question, a solid 52 percent of the 1,703 Californians polled want marijuana legal — and among likely voters (the same people who will likely be called on to make it legal in 2016) support is even higher at 60 percent.
