Poll: 87% in Ohio Support Legalizing Medical Cannabis
A new Quinnipiac University poll has found that 87% of those in Ohio support the legalization of medical cannabis, with only 11% opposed. The poll also found a majority of the state – 51% to 44% – to be in support of legalizing recreational cannabis.
“Ohioans’ views of marijuana are complicated. Twice as many voters think alcohol is more dangerous than marijuana, and about half the state’s voters think the two are equally harmful,” said Peter Brown, Assistant Director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “Ohioans narrowly favor legalizing pot for personal use, with women opposed while men support the idea. Almost nine in 10 in both genders think marijuana should be legal for medical uses. No one should be surprised that support for legalization is strongest among younger voters.”
For the poll, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,370 registered voters between February 12th to February 17th.
