Ending Marijuana Prohibition

63% Of Young Republican Support Marijuana Legalization

republican marijuanaSupport for marijuana legalization has long been a generational issue. Statistically speaking, older voters tend to be against marijuana legalization, while younger people tend to support marijuana legalization. This is true even among political circles that overall don’t always support marijuana legalization. For instance, a new Pew Research poll found that an overwhelming number of young Republicans favor marijuana legalization. Overall, Republicans are less likely to favor legalization compared to liberal political parties, but that appears to not be the case for the younger members of the Republican party. Per the Pew Research Center:

Six-in-ten (63%) GOP Millennials say the use of marijuana should be made legal, while 35% say it should be illegal, according to our February 2014 survey. That level of support is higher than among Republican Generation Xers (47%) and Baby Boomers (38%), and much higher than among GOP members of the Silent generation (17%). (When we asked the question again in October, overall opinion was only slightly changed.)

Republican Millennials, however, are not as supportive of marijuana legalization as their young Democratic and Democratic-leaning counterparts. Democrats overall are more enthusiastic supporters, with three-in-four (77%) Democratic Millennials favoring legal marijuana use, as well as 66% of Boomers, 61% of Gen Xers and 44% of the Silent generation inside the party. Across every generational divide, Democrats show higher support than Republicans on this issue.

The overall sea change in marijuana views comes as Oregon, Alaska and the District of Columbia passed ballot measures legalizing marijuana use in the 2014 election, with the latter two officially going into effect this week. (Colorado and Washington are the only other states that have instituted laws to legalize marijuana.)

Legalized marijuana is on the horizon for the rest of the nation. Oregon, Alaska, D.C., Washington, and Colorado were the first areas of the country to legalize, but they certainly won’t be the last. As older generations of Americans are replaced by their younger counterparts, of any political affiliation, the support for marijuana reform will continue to grow. We have already reached and passed the tipping point, and time is clearly on the side of marijuana legalization efforts.

    Now poll them on how many support moonshine, and you’ll see that across all of the age brackets that it hovers near 100% despite the fact that it’s still illegal to produce without being licensed. Home production of alcohol was illegal until 1978. Moonshine still wasn’t made legal then.

    I knew a Supply Sergeant who kept a mason jar of moonshine on his shelf in his office in the armory to sip from time to time. It was never questioned or removed.

  • Acidsex

    How can that be? I read right here on Weedblog how us conservatives are evil and don’t favor legalization among many other atrocities?

    • There’s a difference between GOP voters and GOP elected officials. And if these young Republicans vote for people who oppose legalization, then they’re really not helping, are they?

      • Sarijuana

        Let’s hope they teach their parents well.

      • Acidsex

        Because some of us still believe in the principled notion of limited government and reduction in spending which unfortunately hardly any on the Liberal side understand or grasp the concept of. In addition, we also understand that voting those GOP officials is the best way to stop the fundamental change to our country and its path going forward with all of the illegal aliens here that are taking away jobs and soon tax refund dollars from the American public. Sometimes we have to vote for the bigger picture on fiscal items rather than the smaller social issues that Liberals love to trot out.

        But don’t ever forget that each state that has legalized medical and recreational could not have done so solely on the Democrat vote. They required the compassion and support of the voters of the party they constantly demonize which is why I made my original remark.

        • You believe in limited government, but you vote for Republicans?

          70% of Democrats voted against renewing the Patriot Act. Only 14% of Republicans did.

          And Republicans are fine with big government when it comes to lying us into wars, forcing women to give birth, and plenty of other things. Especially violating our civil liberties.

          “reduction in spending which unfortunately hardly any on the Liberal side understand or grasp the concept of.”

          Reagain tripled the debt. Bush doubled it.

          Clinton eliminated the deficit. It’s gone down under Obama from the over $1 trillion mark Bush left it.

          You have your facts exactly backwards. Not to mention the Little Bush Depression, the huge increases in military spending, and the massive drops in revenues from tax cuts that never increase revenues as promised.

          “we also understand that voting those GOP officials is the best way to stop the fundamental change to our country”

          Sure, if you want to force women to give birth to rape babies, lie us into $2 trillion dollar wars that destabilize entire regions, and create the largest depression since the great one.

          “illegal aliens here that are taking away jobs”

          More bullshit. You want to pick produce and clean toilets, but can’t?

          “tax refund dollars from the American public”

          WTF? Do you even know what you’re talking about?

          “Sometimes we have to vote for the bigger picture on fiscal items rather than the smaller social issues that Liberals love to trot out.”

          Wow. So, you’ll vote for anti-weed people because you want to elect free spending Republicans who bullshit about cutting spending but never do?

          “But don’t ever forget that each state that has legalized medical and recreational could not have done so solely on the Democrat vote.”

          More bullshit. California doesn’t need Republican votes for anything. I could give other examples, but you obviously don’t care about facts.

          “They required the compassion and support of the voters of the party they constantly demonize ”

          You just demonized Democrats, and then you blame us for demonizing you.

          What a joke.

          • Kane

            Wow dude you’re really annoying. I’ve seen your posts on some of the other blogs and it makes me cringe. All you talk about is democrats and republicans, I mean Its pretty obvious that your a hardcore Hillary fan which is sad in itself. Though there is this other party out there called Libertarians, you should check em out before anyone reading your posts pulls their hair out.

          • “Wow dude you’re really annoying”

            And this is the substantive debate you’re offering?

            “I’ve seen your posts on some of the other blogs and it makes me cringe.”

            So, you don’t care for facts either?

            “All you talk about is democrats and republicans,”

            You said you’ve only seen some of my “posts” so how could you possibly know “all” I talk about?

            “Its pretty obvious that your a hardcore Hillary fan”

            Do you have some evidence to support this assertion?

            Of course you don’t, because while I would vote for Hillary instead of, say, Jeb Bush, I’m certainly no fan of hers. She’s far to hawkish for me. But I’m a realist, and I know that in order to be elected President of this country of warmongering hippie punchers, you can’t be a dove. And a woman certainly couldn’t be.

            But I’m sure her hawkish advisors would be better than the neocon scum who Jeb has surrounded himself with. You know, the same people who lied us into Iraq?

            “there is this other party out there called Libertarians”

            You think I’m unfamiliar with Glibertarians? The people who hold NO major elected offices? The people who are, generally, further right economically than Republicans? The people who vote for Republicans even though they claim to support civil liberties?

            Yeah, I’ve checked them out. They’re a joke. That’s why they got 1% of the Presidential vote.

            Anything else?

          • Kane

            No because I’d rather talk to a donkey than carry on a conversation with you, wait you are a donkey democrat. You talk too much, but yet you really don’t have that much to say. Don’t get all butt hurt man it’s not personal, I’m just trying to help you.

          • Acidsex

            LMFAO. You act like the only abortions are from rapes. Surely you are more intelligent than that. How much has the federal debt gone since Obama has taken office? $8 trillion? As for the picking produce and cleaning toilets, you are right, we can’t. Not for the paltry wages the illegals are willing to do it for.

            Maybe you would like to talk about the false unemployment numbers. Because if you believe that number is under 6% then you are much dumber than your post led me to believe. And that number is far greater for minorities.

            And yes, even the IRS just came out and confirmed that illegals can file tax returns for the last 4 years and claim the earned income credit and receive up to $35K in refunds. And you don’t see a problem with that? http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/mar/2/irs-defends-refunds-illegals-never-filed-taxes/

            You don’t even realize that you are being sold out in exchange for people who have done nothing for this country all so Democrats can continue to be elected. Do you really believe amnesty for illegals is a humanitarian effort? You don’t think for one second it is about cultivating a new class of Democrat leaning voters?

            Sorry Scott, you might need to wipe the liberal jizz off of your face before we can discuss anything further. Yours and the Liberal ideology is so far out of whack it’s not even comical any longer. Same can be said for those long standing traditional Republicans. Libertarian is the only smart choice for people that actually care about this country. It is the only party that wants everyone to be left the fuck alone.

          • dinges65

            Obama inherited a state at the border of collapse from Bush.
            It is a pity that many people have such short memories.

            Those that don’t remember are doomed to repeat the errors of the past.

          • Acidsex

            Obama did not inherit it. He asked for it. He campaigned for it. He promised to make things better. And he failed. Sorry, facts are what they are. I can give him credit for trying but realistically there is only so much that a community organizer could accomplish. He doesn’t have the chops to lead our country. He cares more about illegals than he does real threats to our security. But he sure does approve of spying on Americans and using the IRS to target his critics. At least Nixon had enough character and common sense to resign. The Narcissist in DC has no character.

          • “Obama did not inherit it.”

            Inherit what? He inhertied two bullshit wars, an economy in freefall, a border full of holes…

            “He asked for it. ”

            Asked for what? The biggest depression since the Great Depression? The middle east in shambles? Our reputation tarnished all over the world?

            “He campaigned for it.”

            For what? Thousands of kids trying to escape rape and sexual slavery by coming to the country that, under GW Bush, passed a law that gives them sanctuary?

            “He promised to make things better. And he failed.”

            When Bush left office, GDP was NEGATIVE nine percent and job losses were at 800,000 per MONTH.

            Are job losses now higher than 800,000 per month? Is GDP less than negative nine?

            If not, then you’re a fucking liar.

            “But he sure does approve of spying on Americans”

            Republicans are fine with that. As I said, 70% of Democrats voted against renewing the Patriot Act. Only 14% of Republicans did.

            You know, the pot hating, warmongering Republicans you vote for because, what?… You’re a racist?

            “using the IRS to target his critics”

            If you have proof that he did that, Fox would pay you a lot of money. And not only did Obama NOT have anything to do with the IRS looking into Tea Bagger outfits, which would be a major crime, it turns out the IRS actually looked into progressive groups at least as much.

            —-

            Of course, the best thing about your little tirade here is that we can all see that you prefer to vote for Republicans because you hate brown people. Even though Republicans overwhelmingly oppose marijuana reform.

            Adorable.

          • Acidsex

            He asked for the job of Presidency. Do you really think he didn’t know the problems he was getting with said job? The Middle East is in shambles because he pulled all of the troops and left no reserves behind which is why ISIS/L is taking over Iraq.

            And where is the evidence these kids were actually suffering any of these said crimes? Because they said so. Shit, anyone can say they were a victim of abuse in order to get entry here. Why is it our country’s responsibility to welcome these kids? Sorry, we are not the world’s charity especially considering we have many of our own suffering here in our country. If every one who wanted a job had a job, if every one who needed food had food, etc…. if all of that is met FIRST, then I have no problem trying to help others. But they are breaking the fucking law and invading our country ILLEGALLY. Then get pissed off, call us names, call us racist, etc..l all because we tell them to get the fuck out. Sneak into Mexico and what do you think happens? But somehow America should just open our borders and let the downtrodden of other nations come pouring into our country because their country sucks and can’t support their own people.

            As for the racist accusation, I would literally fuck your world up if you had the balls to say it in person. You assume I vote Republican because of race? Really? Then what about the 95% of blacks that vote for Obama because he is black? Oh, I get it. That is pride when they do it but when whites vote for someone who is white, it’s because they are racist against “brown” people.

            As for the IRS, watch what comes out in Lerner’s emails. She was directed by Holder and the DOJ– you know Holder, Obama’s right hand man. And you are full of shit about equality there. But then again, I am confident you have never watched a single hearing on CSPAN. You think the American people are stupid? President Racebaiter and his pals Sharpton, Cummings, Jackson Lee, and Holder are exposing themselves every time they open their fucking mouths. Sad thing here is you are married to your political party. I share no such marriage to any party except one of liberty. You can make all of the Libertarian remarks you want and while we may have 1% of the Presidential vote, we stand on principles. The other 99% are parties of assholes.

          • “You act like the only abortions are from rapes.”

            No I don’t. I just know what a personhood amendment would result in.

            “Surely you are more intelligent than that. ”

            Yep.

            “How much has the federal debt gone since Obama has taken office? ”

            A lot. And it’s all Bush’s fault (see graph attached). He wrecked the economy. The resulting Little Bush Depression was worse than the previous four recessions combined.

            Takes a long time to get over that. And, we’ve had to get over it while watching public employment fall, meaning, Obama has actually shrunk the government. No other modern President has had to shrink public employment during a recovery.

            “Not for the paltry wages the illegals are willing to do it for.”

            You mean the minimum wage the GOP won’t raise? Or do you mean that the corporations you people love so much won’t pay enough?

            “Maybe you would like to talk about the false unemployment numbers”

            The numbers are measured the same way they were under every other president. Or do you think they’re only fake when a Democrat is in charge?

            And, yes, unemployment is a problem with young people, minorities, and work force participation is also a problem. That’s why I think we should be spending on our crumbling infrastructure, which the GOP won’t agree to.

            They only like to spend money to save American lives by invading countries that didn’t attack us.

            And yes, undocumented immigrants pay taxes, so they should be treated the same when it comes to refunds. Or do you want them to pay taxes and you keep all the money? And I won’t read anything published by the Moonie Times, so don’t bother.

            “You don’t even realize that you are being sold out in exchange for people who have done nothing for this country all”

            Now you’re starting to piss me off. Immigrants built this country. Many of them illegal, or brought here against their will. Now they come here for the freedoms of Reagan’s shining city (you remember Reagan? Granted amnesty?)… And they pick our food, clean our rooms, mop our floors, build our buildings, and you say they have done nothing?

            “Do you really believe amnesty for illegals is a humanitarian effort?”

            Yes. Especially when it comes to children who were brought here. Or to their parents you want to deport. As if we could deport 11 million people.

            “You don’t think for one second it is about cultivating a new class of Democrat leaning voters?”

            Illegals can’t vote. But other people of that race or color or nationality who ARE citizens can. And when you exhibit racism towards people like them, they’re not going to vote for you.

            Tough shit, huh?

            “Sorry Scott, you might need to wipe the liberal jizz off of your face”

            Oh, of course, you wingnuts always like to talk nasty. Some deep seated hatred for gay people showing there? Or are you just stuck in some kind of Freudian bullshit? But if you want to talk nasty, bring it wingnut.

            “before we can discuss anything further”

            Run away, chicken shit.

            “Yours and the Liberal ideology is so far out of whack it’s not even comical any longer.”

            Out of whack with what? The voters who elected a liberal President twice? People who are going to kick your sorry ass in the next election?

            Please go to Predict It and put some money on it, ya hear?

            Glibertarians are not the people who want everyone to be left alone. They are the people who would allow corporations to cost shift their negative externalities onto the rest of us. Just like Republicans.

            Oh please enlighten me where illegals pay taxes? How can they pay taxes when they did not have social security numbers?

            Legalized immigrants built this country, ILLEGALS did no such thing. But good to see you pissed off. They have done nothing but take from the American people. Who gives a fuck if their parents were irresponsible and brought them here illegally. Why should the tax payer have to pay for the sins of the parent?

            What about the thousands of illegals that poured over the border last year WITHOUT parents? Seems you Liberals only like to cherry pick the facts that support your arguments. And there are way more than 11 million here illegally.

            As for illegals not being able to vote, you don’t understand the purpose of amnesty leading to citizenship now do you?

          • “please enlighten me where illegals pay taxes”

            You can’t be enlightened, but I will show you facts that you’ll ignore…

            http://www.itep.org/immigration/

            > Undocumented immigrants currently contribute significantly to state and local taxes, collectively paying an estimated $10.6 billion in 2010 with contributions ranging from less than $2 million in Montana to more than $2.2 billion in California. This means these families are likely paying about 6.4 percent on average of their income in state and local taxes.

            “Legalized immigrants built this country”

            Actually, stealing land from natives and stealing slaves from Africa built this country. And plenty of illegals contributed to this country.

            “They have done nothing but take from the American people.”

            Racist bullshit. Read the study linked to above to see what they contribute. If you care.

            “What about the thousands of illegals that poured over the border last year WITHOUT parents?”

            They’re kids. I think they should stay.

            “And there are way more than 11 million here illegally”

            You say things without backing them up. Typical.

            And if people who were given amnesty vote for the people who gave it to them, then a lot more Latinos should vote Republican.

          • He’s much better on this than the alternatives. And that’s the choice we have, thanks to the fact that so many Americans vote based on hate instead of logic.

          • Acidsex

            How is he better? You do realize once he took office, raids were higher than at any time under Bush right? Where is your proof to state Americans vote based off hatred? Liberal logic for voting is getting shit for free in return. Would things have been better under Romney? I don’t know. I do think the economy would be much better because he does understand business. Obama does not whatsoever. Better than McCain? Possibly. McCain would have drug us into wars but then again, he is doing it now with the whole Ukraine bullshit.

            Obama is nothing more than a puppet for the Murdochs and Soros of the world. He is not better on this issue than people like Gary Johnson, Ron or Rand Paul would have been. They believe in liberty and the right to be left the fuck alone.

            “Where is your proof to state Americans vote based off hatred?”

            If you, a proponent of marijuana reform, vote for Republicans because of immigration, then you are my proof.

            “Liberal logic for voting is getting shit for free in return. ”

            Ah, the 47% bullshit. Well, let’s see… corporate CEOs whose pollution kills people vote for Republicans who will let them cost-shift that onto taxpyers.

            And large corporations who encourage their workers to get food stamps and medicaid because the minimum wage is too low, they’re getting all that for free, and it’s the Republicans giving it to them…

            Our infrastructure is falling apart, killing people, ruining cars, costing us more money than if we just fixed it. Who are Republicans giving money to there?

            “Would things have been better under Romney? I don’t know.”

            You mean Willard “What’s Hemp?” Romney? Yes, he really said that.

            “I do think the economy would be much better because he does understand business. ”

            He was a vulture capitalist who took advantage of tax law and pension raiding to bleed people.

            He said he’d get UE to under 6 by 2016. Obama did it in 2014. And without the help of increased spending. Willard wanted to increase military spending to 4% of GDP. So his neocons could send us into Iran.

          You mean all the “illegal aliens” who take all the SHIT jobs us spoiled Americans WON’T do and then pay into our social security system that they can’t collect from. And its your f–k buddy conservatives that have sent all the jobs overseas. So much for the “virtuous circle” with you guys, huh?

          • Acidsex

            Listen dickhead, it’s not Americans are spoiled and don’t want to do those jobs. They don’t want to do it for the disgusting low wages that ILLEGAL ALIENS do it for. And if they are ILLEGAL ALIENS, they don’t have social security cards because they cannot get one therefore they cannot pay into social security. And even if they did, fuck them. They are here illegally. They are not entitled to the same benefits those who are here legally. Again, I am no conservative, at least in your definition. You do realize that all of these illegals are taking away job from other minorities right?

            There is nothing wrong with immigrating legally through the process. But because of some assholes in other countries that think we aren’t letting them in fast enough, they take it upon themselves to sneak into a country and use resources they have not built or even contributed to. All because they have an American dream. Fuck them. Personally, I would be okay if the border crossers were shot on sight.

    Numbers like this may explain why Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush came out in favor of leaving marijuana legalization to the states =>

    I don`t think its a good idea for republicans to get high on weed,..It might make them want to rape and kill.

  • Nathaniel

    Not a surprise as we have begun to see much more functional campaigning for states/individuals rights. Most real republicans are in favor of personal responsibility, which extends to a great deal of things ranging from higher ed, to retirement planning, and gun control. This issue falls right under that umbrella and we will likely see proponents begin to sell legalization measures in this fashion to attract a broader base of support.

    It is called good bipartisan politics and it benefits us all.

  • James Sunderland

    If CPAC is any indication, conservatives will oppose marijuana come 2016 like they always will. Just because kids want to smoke doesn’t mean shit. They’ll “grow up” and fight against legalization just like their parents.

    Once you find out that cannabis provides relief to geriatric problems, old republicans favor it.

  • William Levy

    Its bad that old republicans do not favor the use of medical cannabis. It is really a good plant as studies have shown its amazing health benefits. They should understand the fact and go for the legalization of
    cannabis drug
    medical marijuana.

    Why don’t you run along home now cause you just got OWNED!

    • Acidsex

      Hi Dick, I don’t recall inviting you to the conversation. Owned? How? None of the shit he posted is actually true. Only a fucking retarded Liberal would call slanting and lies as owning someone. You must be part of the Obama administration.

      • Bic

        You don’t get to “invite” people to a public forum you arrogant dick.

  • Oh, believe me. I’ve said much worse to people’s faces. Come on up and find out. I dare you.

  • “The Middle East is in shambles because he pulled all of the troops and left no reserves behind”

    Bullshit. The withdrawal agreement was set by Bush. That’s what he was announcing when the shoe was thrown at him.

    And ISIS is doing well BECAUSE of Bush lying us into Iraq, disbanding the army there, and de-Bathifying the place.

    And I thought you were a Glibertarian? You guys usually oppose empire and nation building. Why are you defending it?

    Turn off Fox News.

    “And where is the evidence these kids were actually suffering any of these said crimes?”

    There’s plenty of it. You could easily find it. But you don’t care about facts.

    “Why is it our country’s responsibility to welcome these kids?”

    Because we passed a bipartisan bill, signed by your buddy GW Bush, that helps kids who are being forced into slavery.

    “Sorry, we are not the world’s charity especially considering we have many of our own suffering here in our country.”

    We spend enough on war and the military to cut the Pentagon budget in half and feed all the hungry kids here at home, plus all these kids running from slavery.

    “If every one who wanted a job had a job, if every one who needed food had food, etc”

    We could invest in infrastructure and get to full employment in a matter of years. But your GOP buddies would rather let our infrastructure crumble, killing more Americans than terrorists in the process.

    “But somehow America should just open our borders”

    Well, no. We could pass the immigration reform bill that passed the Senate. It’s not open borders by any means.

    “let the downtrodden of other nations come pouring into our country because their country sucks”

    Well, in a lot of ways, their countries suck because of shit we’ve done to them for decades. Centuries…

    “As for the racist accusation, I would literally fuck your world up if you had the balls to say it in person.”

    Bring it.

    “You assume I vote Republican because of race?”

    You admitted you vote Republican because of immigration. Stopping brown people from coming to this country is more important to you than voting for the people who would reform marijuana laws.

    “Then what about the 95% of blacks that vote for Obama because he is black?”

    Actually, minorities vote for Democrats because of the way Republicans treat them. A few might have voted for Obama because he’s the first black president. But most of them (and this is easy to find by looking at demographics from past elections) always vote for Democrats because the GOP is the party of the Southern Strategy.

    “As for the IRS, watch what comes out in Lerner’s emails”

    OK… you let me know, eh? In the mean time, the fact remains that they went after progressive groups at least as much as they went after conservative ones. It’s their job.

    “You think the American people are stupid?”

    The more I talk to you, the more I’m convinced they are.

    “Sad thing here is you are married to your political party”

    Actually, I vote Green when I don’t like the Democrat and my vote doesn’t matter. I just vote for Democrats who I mostly agree with and who need my vote to win. Because they’re always better than the Republicans.

    “while we may have 1% of the Presidential vote, we stand on principles”

    I know what you mean. Like I said, I vote Green sometimes.

    Now, come on up. We can fight in the snow. I’ve never done that before.
