A new poll from the Pew Research Center shows highest support yet for marijuana legalization:

Today, 57% of U.S. adults say the use of marijuana should be made legal, while 37% say it should be illegal. A decade ago, opinion on legalizing marijuana was nearly the reverse – just 32% favored legalization, while 60% were opposed.

Millennials, of course, are leading the charge, with overwhelming support for reform. Here’s how other age groups came out:

Support for marijuana legalization has also increased among members of Generation X and Baby Boomers (ages 36-51 and 52-70 in 2016, respectively). More than half of Gen Xers (57%) support legalization, a considerable jump from just 21% in 1990. A majority of Boomers (56%) also support legalization, up from just 17% in 1990.

You can see the whole thing here. The findings are good news for reform campaigns going on in nine states before the November elections.
