Texans’ support for legalizing marijuana has grown significantly over the past decade, according to a new poll.
Sixty percent of state voters now back making cannabis legal “for any use,” the University of Texas and Texas Tribune survey found. That compares to just 42 percent who said the same back in 2010.
In the most recent poll, supporters include 28 percent who say marijuana should be legal in “any amount” for any use and another 32 percent who say only “small amounts” should be allowed. An additional 28 percent want medical cannabis legalized, while 13 percent want prohibition maintained across the board.
