Just in time for 4/20, two big polls on marijuana have been released, one in Canada and one in the United States.
A survey by the Angus Reid Institute has found more than 60 per cent approve of the proposed Cannabis Act from the Trudeau government, but 66 per cent expect it to fail in its key mission of making it harder for teenagers to use pot.
Canadians are nearly evenly split on whether proposed penalties for drugged drivers will have their desired effect, with just 49 per cent saying they will.
And a small majority think it will fail to cut organized crime out of the marijuana industry.
Support for legalization was strongest among 18 to 34-year-olds, at 72 per cent, and weakest among those 55 and older at 55 per cent.
British Columbians were also most likely to back legalization, with 75 per cent support, while support was weakest in Quebec where only 51 per cent of people agreed.
Meanwhile, in the U.S., a CBS news poll has found 61 per cent of Americans think pot should be legal, 88 per cent favour medical marijuana use, and 71 per cent oppose the federal government trying to stop marijuana sales in states where it’s legal.
