New Poll Reveals That 67% of Texans Support Adult-Use Cannabis Legalization

A new poll has revealed that 67% of Texans support adult-use cannabis legalization, and that the issue has bipartisan support in the state.

A Nov. 11 survey from the University of Houston and Southern University found that of the 67% of respondents in favor of legalization, 46% support it strongly and 21% support it somewhat, according to the San Antonio Current.

Of those opposed to legalization, 20% are strongly opposed, while 13% are somewhat opposed, the news outlet reported.

Fifty-one percent of respondents in favor of legalization identify as Republicans, according to the San Antonio Current, while 79% are Democrats and 70% are Independents.

The Texas Legislature expanded the state’s medical cannabis program to include cancer and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as qualifying conditions during the 2021 legislative session.

Meanwhile, industry stakeholders are currently challenging the state’s recent ban on the production and sale of hemp-derived delta-8 THC.

The state’s next legislative session kicks off in January 2023.
