When asked another question, “Do you favor or oppose the Commonwealth of Kentucky allowing residents to buy and use marijuana under any circumstances?” 38% of respondents said that they’re in favor of such a move, including being supported by a majority – 51% – of those aged 18-29. All those aged 65 and older weighed in opposition of the move at the greatest, with only 21% in support.
