New poll shows nearly half of Wyomingites now support recreational marijuana

Nearly half of adults in Wyoming now support legalizing marijuana for recreational use – up from 37 percent just four years ago, according to a new survey.

The survey, conducted by the Wyoming Survey & Analysis Center at the University of Wyoming, found 49 percent of Wyoming residents support allowing adults to legally possess marijuana for personal use. The poll is the third of a series of biannual studies conducted by researchers since 2014 – two years after Amendment 64 passed in neighboring Colorado legalizing recreational marijuana there.

According to University of Wyoming researchers, support for legalization has risen steadily in that time, with a 12 percentage point boost in favor of legalization for recreational use. Support is particularly strong among people ages 18-24 (63 percent in favor), ages 25-29 (58 percent in favor) and ages 35-44 (53 percent). Also in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana were people between 55-64, who supported legalization at a rate of 61.2 percent.

Majority opposition to legalization was seen from those between 45-54 (64 percent opposed), 65-74 (67 percent) and those ages 75 and older (81 percent). [Read more at Casper Star Tribune]
