Support for Legalization in Colorado Up Since Start of Recreational Cannabis Sales

New polling conducted by Public Policy Polling has found that support for cannabis legalization is on the raise in Colorado over a year after voters approved Amendment 64, and less than 3 months after the start of recreational coloradocannabis sales.

According to the poll, 57% of those in the state support cannabis legalization, with just 35% opposed; 54% voted in favor of Amendment 64.

In December – a month before the start of recreational cannabis sales in Colorado – Public Policy Polling found support for cannabis legalization to be at 53%, indicating that support has risen 4% in the past few months.

In the new poll, 61% of respondents stated that they feel cannabis legalization has either bettered the state, or has had little effect, with just 33% believing it has made the state “worse”.

Colorado earned over $2 million in tax revenue from legal recreational cannabis sales in January alone, from just 59 businesses.

    Good to know no Sudden Scandal occurred causing a backlash (such as a rash of traffic accidents, or a grisly murder like the Daily Mail reports to the British readers whenever it can).

    Please don’t take this wrong– the name “JointBlog” represents a problem. Unfortunately the word “joint” commonly means a 500-mg drug cocktail of heat shock, carbon monoxide and 4221 combustion toxins. Would most readers desert this blog if you changed your name to something that advertises the switch to VAPORIZATION, Long-Drawtube One-Hitters etc.?

    For example: a joint, when driving, is even more dangerous to handle than a machine-rolled H-ot B-urning O-verdose M-onoxide $igarette; a coal could fall off and threaten to ignite your pants if you don’t fumble around and find it soon enough, etc. ONE shocking accident could derail the public acceptance of cannabis reported above.
