Behka’s Enquiring Minds: Marijuana Reform [SURVEY]
A survey of high school seniors found that most 18-year-olds want marijuana reform.
According to the study, published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs, nearly one-third of students surveyed felt marijuana should be entirely legal, and nearly three in ten say that pot possession should be treated as a minor violation.
The survey included 12,000 students between 2007 and 2011. Researchers did find those more likely to be in favor of legalization were black, liberal and urban students while women, conservatives, religious students and those with friends who disapprove of marijuana use were less likely to support legalization.
Interestingly, nearly 17 percent of those students who had never used marijuana before were in favor of legalization.
So what do you think? Are you in favor of national or state reform when it comes to marijuana? Do you think we should legalize it across the board, or just for medical use? Weigh in with what you think, and we'll talk about it on the air!
