Only 13% of Voters in Iowa, 15% in New Hampshire, Support Feds Interfering with State Cannabis Laws
A new poll conducted by Public Policy Polling, and commissioned by Marijuana Majority, has found that a vast majority of registered voters in Iowa and New Hampshire – the first two states to vote in next year’s presidential primary election – support allowing states to decide their own cannabis policies without federal interference.
According to the poll, 71% of Iowa voters – including 64% of Republicans – are in favor of states deciding their own cannabis laws without fear of federal intrusion. Just 13% are in support of the federal government enforcing federal cannabis laws in states that have legalized it for medical or recreational purposes.
In New Hampshire, the numbers are similar. 73% of voters – including 67% of Republicans – support state rights in regards to cannabis policies. Just 15% are opposed.
This poll makes it clear that when it comes to cannabis, at least in the important primary states of Iowa and New Hampshire, voters want the federal government to minds its own business.
