One in ten Americans have no idea if marijuana is legal in their state as stoners mark 4/20

AS millions of Americans celebrate 4/20, some remain confused about where marijuana is legal in the United States.

A new poll found that one in ten Americans have no idea if marijuana is legal where they live.

A poll has revealed that not all Americans know where marijuana is legal

In a recent OnePoll survey of 1,000 people, 11 percent admitted to not knowing if their home state allows for the legal possession of marijuana and other THC products. 

Roughly 54 percent claimed to live somewhere where marijuana is legal, including 13 percent who claimed it’s only “partially” legal in their area. 

While 39 states have permitted medicinal marijuana use among their citizens, only 19 have also approved it for recreational use — including Colorado, which first legalized the substance in 2012.

Although a national legalization bill passed in the House of Representatives earlier this month, the Senate has yet to review the legislation, with no plans to do so in the immediate future.

Meanwhile, 67 percent of those polled agreed that the United States should legalize marijuana on a federal level.

A nearly identical percentage of respondents also expressed familiarity with April 20, otherwise known as “4/20” — an unofficial holiday for stoners that’s also treated as a day of action among decriminalization activists.

Of course, not everyone was familiar with the term.

“This means 4 over 20 or 4 divided by 20,” said one respondent.


“I haven’t got a fifth of an idea,” said another. 

Others had heard of the date’s connection to cannabis, but not its counterculture origins as a ritual among a group of Californians in the ‘70s, who reportedly smoked every day at 4.20pm.

While marijuana typically factors into stereotypical celebrations of Weed Day, popular non-smoking activities can include indulging in snacks, TV/movie marathons and even some well-deserved couch potato time. 

When asked what they’d hypothetically choose to watch at such an event, one in four respondents picked “something comforting and easy to follow” like the Great British Baking Show.

Another one in five would prefer something “funny and nonsensical” like Monty Python’s Flying Circus or Anchorman.
