New Poll: Majority in California Want Cannabis Legalized

According to a new poll conducted by the Public Policy Institute of California, 60% of likely voters in the state are in favor of legalizing cannabis, the highest yet recorded by the institute. Only 38% are in opposition to such a move. Majority support was expressed among all age groups.cannabisleaf

Support was particularly high among Democrats, with only 33% being opposed to legalization. Unsurprisingly, Republicans were the least likely to support legalizing cannabis, although nearly half (45%) responded in favor.

Support was strong amongst all political parties and age groups for keeping the feds out of California’s cannabis policies; 68% of likely voters (including 61% of Republicans) responded that they don’t want the federal government to enforce federal cannabis policies in the state.

This poll clearly demonstrates that support for cannabis law reform is on the rise in California. Whether in 2014, or 2016, California is poised to be one of the next states to legalize cannabis.

    I truely feel that this plant should legal just as it was in the 1800’s. This would put an end to needing to kill so many trees, which in turn would aid in cleaner air, more natural habits, and increase of income for states in taxes, also for those who farm or open shops, this would just mean more taxes for each state in turn more money for the goverment. By making this legal we as a country could get from under the thumb of Chain and put some money into education. Face facts legal or not there are more people that smoke than not and they will continue to smoke, we all can benifit if legal, even those who don’t smoke.
