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 disorder (PTSD) as qualifying conditions during the 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.
