Results from two new polls found the majority of Americans support making cannabis legal, with the large majority of young adults crossing party lines and states to support the idea.

Nationally, 53 percent of Americans support legalizing marijuana, according to a new Pew Research Center survey. The survey found that young adults aged 18-34 were more supportive, at 68 percent, than older voter demographics such as the 35-50 age group, which registered support at 52 percent. Young adults were more supportive across party lines as well.
