Legalized marijuana is in its infancy out west. Don’t expect it to come into North Carolina any time soon, if the politicians pay attention to the Elon Poll results.
Fifty-one percent of respondents oppose legalizing marijuana versus 39% who support it.
Digging deeper into the numbers:
Politics: 43% of Democrats, 47% of Independents and just 23% of Republicans support legalization. Not surprising.
Gender: 46% of men and 32% of women support legalization. If anyone can explain that, have at it.
Race: 39% of whites and 36% of African Americans support legalization. Finally, an issue not divided by race!
Age: If it were left up to the 18-30 age group, marijuana would be legalized. 54% support it. But it declines in each age group as they get older.
