decriminalization views increase, reaching its peak within the 41+ year-old age group. However, kids between the ages of 1 to 20 still account for a large portion of our poll for the anti- legalization stance, because of all age groups we polled, 1-20 was our largest, with 62 participants. Going along with our Edison demographic, a large majority of our poll consisted of Asian Americans and Caucasians, as they are prominent in Edison Township. From our results, we saw more or less of a 50/50 split in each demographic over the issue in most races except for the Asian race. 24 Caucasians supported legalization and 21 opposed it and 12 African Americans opposed it with 14 supporting it. However, 22 Asians supported legalization, whereas we saw a huge spike in the numbers of anti-legalization advocates at 37.

Patel, Desai, Sen, Shah, Hajirawala, Jumkhawala In relation to the New Jersey state poll, our results match in the respect that a large percentage of the population doesn’t advocate legalization. However, where the difference of the percentages between pro-legalization and anti-legalization in our poll was 7.3%, the difference in the NJ State poll was 23%, more than 3 times our difference. However, our results more closely match the national poll, conducted by Gallup, rather than Rutgers’ state poll. Gallup’s poll indicates 50% anti-legalization and 46% legalization, in comparison to our 49.3% anti- legalization and 42% pro-legalization. Therefore, though our poll was taken on a minute scale compared to the Rutgers and Gallup polls, it still reflected the basic opinion of the public, and despite the sampling error, was still comparable and viable to nationally acclaimed polls.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
