Poll: Only 27% of Pennsylvania Voters Want Cannabis to Remain Illegal
A new poll conducted by Keystone Analytics has found that a large majority of Pennsylvania voters support a reformation of the state’s cannabis policies, with only 27% supporting the current prohibition on cannabis.
“Sixty-nine percent of voters would like to see the legalization of marijuana, with 47 percent in favor of use for medicinal purposes only and 22 percent for any purpose”, says Jennifer Shockley of Keystone Analystics. “Twenty-seven percent believe that marijuana should remain illegal in the Commonwealth.”
Results are based on a live telephone survey of 500 likely general election voters and includes a +/-4.4 percent margin of error. The full survey can be found by clicking here.
A Frankling and Marshal College poll released in July found that 84% of voters in Pennsylvania support legalizing medical cannabis, echoing a poll conducted by Mercyhurst University, released in March, which found that 85% of registered Pennsylvania voters support medical cannabis legalization.
