Public support for legalizing marijuana is at 60 percent — the highest level in a 47-year Gallup trend — according to a survey from the longtime polling outfit released Wednesday.

The 60 percent level of support eclipses the 58 percent level from 2013 and 2015. In 2013, support had reached a majority for the first time after Washington state and Colorado legalized marijuana for recreational use.
