Legalizing marijuana is more popular than implementing a national $15 minimum wage, rejoining the Paris climate agreement or establishing a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, according to a new poll of U.S. adults.
Sixty-one percent of the survey’s respondents said they thought recreational cannabis legalization is a good idea, while 39 percent said it’s a bad one. The next most popular of the national policy proposals included in the poll was rejoining the Paris climate accord, which came in at 57 percent in favor.
Legal marijuana also ranked ahead of President Joe Biden’s job performance (49 percent approval) and the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump (49 percent say it is a good idea).
