US: Most Wisconsin voters - including Republicans - support legalizing cannabis, poll shows

Support for cannabis legalization in Wisconsin has reached a new, bipartisan high, according to a poll released on Wednesday, the 17th of August.

The survey from Marquette Law School found that a solid 69 percent of registered voters in Wisconsin believe cannabis should be legal, which marks an eight percentage point increase since the firm’s last poll on the issue that was released in March.

Eighty-one percent of Democrats, 75 percent of independents, and 51 percent of Republicans said they back legalization in the latest poll.

Younger people were significantly more likely to embrace the policy change, with support at 83 percent for those 18-29 and 89 percent for those 30-44, for example. But even those 60+ still voiced majority support at 53 percent.
