A survey conducted by the Pew Research Center between March 13-17, among 1,501 adults, shows that for the first time in more than forty years of polling on the issue, a majority of Americans now favor legalizing the use of marijuana. The survey indicates that 52% say that the use of marijuana should be made legal, while 45% say it should not. This represents an increase of 11 percentage points in those favoring legalization since 2011. Young people between the ages of 18 and 32 polled the highest, with 65% in support, up from just 36% in 2008.

Additionally, within the Baby Boomer group (those born between 1946 and 1964), 50% now favor legalizing marijuana, among the highest percentages ever. In past studies, statistics have fluctuated in the Boomer group. For example, in 1978, 47% of Boomers favored legalizing marijuana, but support fell during the 1980s reaching a low of 17% in 1990. However, since 1994 the percentage of Boomers favoring marijuana legalization has  more than doubled, going from 24% to 50%.
