As voters in California have their say on Proposition 19, a proposal that would legalize, tax and regulate marijuana, the measure enjoys wide popular support across the United States, according to a new Angus Reid Public Opinion Poll.
Two in five Americans — 42 percent — believe that if Prop 19 passes, it will be a positive development for the U.S. One third of respondents — 33 percent — think passage of Prop 19 would be a negative development for the country.
A majority of respondents aged 18 to 34 — 52 percent — said the passage of Prop 19 would be a positive development. However, only 32 percent of respondents over age 55 agreed.
