Americans increasingly support marijuana legalization, according to a 2017 Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll. The number of U.S. adults who believe it "should be legal" to possess small amounts of marijuana rose to 53 percent, up from 41 percent in a similar poll in 2012.

A 2018 Gallup poll found two of every three Americans support legalization, a record high, and for the first time a slim majority of Republicans support legal marijuana. Three of every four Democrats back legalization.
