How Much Do Millennials Love Marijuana?

It’s no secret that younger Americans are more accepting of cannabis than the older generations, but recent poll results show just how much. According to a survey by online pollsters The Tylt, nine out of 10 millennials believe that marijuana is safer than alcohol.

According to the poll, released earlier this month, 84 percent of millennials support legalizing the herb. The survey revealed:

It is interesting to note that more than 8 out of 1o millennials believe that those who are locked up for marijuana-related crimes should be released from incarceration. In 2016, 653,249 people were arrested for marijuana-related offenses — 89 percent of whom were arrested for possession. That’s more than half a million people, yet a 2017 report estimates that 123,000 Americans are now working full-time in the cannabis industry.

According to its website, The Tylt considers itself to be “the largest and fastest growing social polling and opinion platform among millennials.”

Of course, this is not the first survey to show widespread support for cannabis among younger Americans. A 2017 CBS News poll also demonstrated the trend.

According to the CBS poll, 61 percent of Americans of all ages think marijuana use should be legal, a five-point increase from the previous year and the highest percentage ever recorded in this poll. Among adults between the ages of 18 and 34, 76 percent support legal marijuana use.
