Much of this growth probably stems from California’s legalization of recreational weed in November 2016, and opening its doors to adult-use sales on Jan. 1. Growth is also a function of favorability. Five separate national polls have been conducted since April of last year — CBS News, Quinnipiac University, Gallup, Pew Research Center, and Fox News — and all...
