The key to voter turnout? Put marijuana on the ticket.

Updated

If politicians want to get more people to the polls this November, looks like all they need to do is put marijuana on the ticket.

That’s according to a new poll from George Washington University which finds that 39% of surveyed voters would be more likely to head to the polls if there was a proposal to legalize marijuana. An additional 30% of those surveyed said they would be more more likely to vote in the 2014 midterm election under that circumstance.

Americans also seem to be more open overall to changing marijuana laws: efforts to legalize marijuana shows a 73% approval rating while decriminalizing the possession of pot has a 53% approval rating.
