The 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference’s poll of conservative attitudes toward marijuana might surprise you.
41 percent of respondents said “Marijuana should be legalized for recreational and medical use and taxed,” while 21 percent said “Marijuana should be legalized only for medical purposes when prescribed by a doctor.”
31 percent said, “Marijuana should remain illegal” while 6 percent abstained from the question.
Due to the large youth presence at the conference, CPAC pollster Tony Fabrizio noted that with the exception of those 65 and older, pluralities of conservatives in each age group supported the legalization of marijuana in either its recreational or medicinal forms.
