Nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that marijuana ought to be legalized nationwide, according to polling data compiled by Investor’s Business Daily and TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence.

Overall, 63 percent of respondents backed legalization – a percentage that is consistent with other recent polls. Seventy-five percent of self-identified Democrats endorsed legalization, as did a majority (66 percent) of Independent voters. A majority of Republicans did not support legalization.

Nearly one in four Americans said that “they or someone in their home had consumed cannabis for medical or recreational purposes over the past half-year.” Self-reported use was highest among those ages 25 to 44.
