A new survey conducted by Suffolk University has found that a vast majority of those in Massachusetts believe that cannabis prohibition is a failed policy that’s not worth the costs associated with it.
The poll – which included numerous questions, most unrelated to cannabis – asked the following: “Do you agree or disagree that government efforts to enforce marijuana laws cost more than they are worth?”
The results were as follows, with less than 1 in 5 believing prohibition to be a worthy policy:
- 67% said Yes,
- 17% said No, with
- 17% undecided.
This new survey confirms that Massachusetts is ready for meaningful cannabis law reform, and gives further weight to continuing efforts in the state to bring about the full legalization of cannabis for adults.
