A special Roy Morgan online survey shows that 62% of Australians do not want the Federal Government to overturn the new ACT law decriminalising cannabis for personal use, which is set to come into effect in 2020. Just 27% say they do want the Federal Government to step in, while 11% can’t say either way. Clear majorities of all age groups are against the Federal Government stepping in and overturning the law, led by 66% of 35-49 year olds and 63% of 14-24 year olds. The smallest majority is in the 65+ age group, but even here 58% do not want the law overturned. These are the latest findings from a special Roy Morgan online survey conducted with a representative cross-section of 1,054 Australians aged 14+ in mid-October.
