Most Canadians, Americans want marijuana legalised: Poll
OTTAWA (AFP) - A majority of Americans and Canadians want marijuana legalised, saying cannabis should be readily available for those who want to use it, according to a survey released on Thursday.
The Angus Reid online survey of 2,007 people in the two countries found that 57 per cent of Canadians and 54 per cent of Americans support the legalisation of pot.
The bulk of that support comes from 18 to 34 year olds in the United States (US) at 65 per cent and those aged 35 to 54 in Canada at 61 per cent.
Furthermore two-thirds of Canadians and Americans expect their respective governments to end marijuana prohibition within a decade.
