A new Gallup poll found that 64 percent of Americans support legalizing marijuana.

Seventy-two percent of Democrats told pollsters this month they support legalizing marijuana, up from 67 percent in 2016, according to the results published Wednesday.
The survey of 1,028 Americans over the age of 18 also found that 51 percent of respondents with Republican political affiliation said they supported legal marijuana.

"It makes sense that support for ending marijuana prohibition is increasing", said Morgan Fox, the director of communications for Marijuana Policy Project, the nation's largest organization devoted to reforming cannabis laws.

In 2010 Democrats were nearly twice as likely as Republicans to favor legalization. For results based on the total sample of national adults, the margin of sampling error is ±4 percentage points at the 95% confidence level.
