Will Millennials Bring an End to Cannabis Prohibition?

Millennials are blamed for all sorts of things, from declining beer sales to shuttered chain restaurants to the end of bar soap. But there’s one thing we can definitely thank millennials for: their love of cannabis. And if the much-maligned generation has anything to say about it, the days of marijuana prohibition are numbered.

According to online pollsters The Tylt, the majority of millennials support cannabis legalization. In a poll of over 6,000 millennial-aged respondents, 84% believe that cannabis should be legalized.

On their website, The Tylt describes themselves as “the largest and fastest growing social polling and opinion platform among millennials.”

The Tylt’s polling data is in line with other surveys gauging generational support for legal weed. A 2017 CBS News poll found that 61% of Americans of all ages support marijuana legalization, a five-point increase from 2016. The same poll found that 76% of adults between the ages of 18 and 34 support legal cannabis use.

So how much do millennials love pot? Here’s some more insight from The Tylt’s polling:

Cannabis is about more than getting high, and this growing industry is generating billions of dollars in revenue and creating thousands of jobs. When it comes to cannabis, the millennial generation are enthusiastic supporters, and it’s only a matter of time before this is reflected in our country’s legislation.
