Poll: Nearly 70% of Voters in North Carolina Support Legalizing Medical Cannabis

Nearly sevennc2 out of ten North Carolina voters support legalizing the doctor prescribed use of cannabis for medical purposes, according to a new Public Policy Polling survey.

According to the poll, 69% of voters in North Carolina believe that “doctors should be allowed to prescribe marijuana for medical use”. Just 21% oppose the move, with the remaining 10% being undecided.

Opposition to medical cannabis dropped 9%, down from 30%, since the question was last asked in the state by Public Policy Polling in 2014.

The survey was conducted the weekend before House Bill 78 – the Enact Medical Cannabis Act – was introduced by Representative Kelly Alexander with nine legislative co-sponsors. The proposal would legalize medical cannabis for those with debilitating conditions, and would establish a system of state-licensed dispensaries to distribute the medicine.

In July of 2014, Governor Pat McCrory signed House Bill 1220 into law, which legalized the possession, use and distribution (through neurologists) of high-CBD, low-THC cannabis extracts for those with epilepsy. Although the measure was clearly a step forward, many advocates argue it didn’t go nearly far enough in bringing proper reform to the state, hence the introduction of House Bill 78.
