A strong majority of voters in Michigan support legalizing, taxing and regulating cannabis for recreational purposes, according to a new SurveyUSA poll.
According to the poll, 64% of Michigan voters support legalizing cannabis in order to increase road and school funding, with just 28% of voters opposed to the move.
The poll found that a majority of voters support legalization regardless of party affiliation, with 57% of Republicans supporting the move, 65% of Democrats and 68% of Independents. Those aged 18 to 34 were found to be most likely to support legalization, with 72% favoring the move. Those aged 65 and older is the only age-group found to not have majority support for legalization, with the numbers being even at 47% in favor, 47% opposed and 3% undecided.
A poll released earlier this month by the polling firm EPIC-MRA also found a majority of Michigan voters to be in favor of legalizing cannabis.
