Baltic News Network - - News -

The ma­jor­ity of res­i­dents in Latvia do not sup­port the idea of le­gal­iz­ing the use of mar­i­juana in the coun­try, ac­cord­ing to data from a sur­vey per­formed by SKDS.

In July, res­i­dents were asked if they think mar­i­juana should be le­gal­ized in Latvia.

Res­i­dents’ opin­ion on this mat­ter re­mains un­changed – the ab­so­lute ma­jor­ity or 84% of res­i­dents believe use of mar­i­juana should not be le­gal­ized. Since 2010, when the sur­vey was per­formed the first time, the pro­por­tion of res­i­dents who are against le­gal­iza­tion of mar­i­juana has ranged be­tween 81% and 88% and reach­ing the max­i­mum in 2015.

Only 9% of res­i­dents who par­tic­i­pated in the sur­vey this year voiced the op­po­site opin­ion. 7% of res­i­dents could not pro­vide a clear an­swer to this ques­tion.
