More than half of U.S. adults have tried marijuana at least once in their lives, according to a new Marist/Yahoo poll.
Cannabis' popularity continues to rise, with 56 percent of respondents saying they found marijuana "socially acceptable." But much of that support may be limited to medical marijuana, with 47 percent of respondents opposing recreational pot.
Highlights from the poll:
- Eight in ten Americans support legalizing medical marijuana
- 14 percent say they use marijuana at least once or twice a month
- 70 percent believe their parents would be unhappy to learn they smoked pot
- 58 percent of parents say their children would disapprove if they found out they smoked pot
- 73 percent of kids say they've talked to kids about marijuana
- More parents say they worry about their kids using marijuana than drinking, smoking cigarettes or cheating on a test
WATCH | As marijuana grows in acceptance, so does the business aspect. So some entrepreneurs made their own professional networking app -- essentially a LinkedIn for weed.
And while legalizing recreational marijuana may seem far off in the U.S., Canada may be set to do so by summer 2018.
