Majority Of Texas Voters Support Marijuana Legalization, Poll Finds

A majority of Texas voters support legalizing marijuana for medical and recreational use, according to a new poll.

The survey from The Dallas Morning News and University of Texas at Tyler found that 72 percent of registered voters in Texas, including a majority of Republicans (67 percent), said they back medical cannabis legalization.


Meanwhile, 55 percent of respondents said they support legalizing marijuana for adult use. While the reform proposal has become more bipartisan nationwide, however, Texas Republicans are divided on the issue, with 48 percent opposed and 43 in favor of broad legalization.


Thatโ€™s compared to 65 percent of Democrats and 63 percent of independents who back the policy change.

The poll involved interviews with 1,384 registered voters from August 1-7, and has a margin of error of +/- 2.6 percentage points.

It should also be pointed out that a prior poll from the University of Houston and Texas Southern University that was released late last year found significantly more support (67 percent) for legalization among Texas residents, with a slim majority of Republicans on board as well.
