In 2014 Oregon voters gave approve to Measure 91. The initiative legalized the possession and licensed cultivation of up to an ounce of cannabis for those 21 and older, as well as the personal cultivation of up to six plants. A little over two years later and not only is there no sign of buyer’s remorse, but a large chunk of those who opposed legalization now support it.
According to a new poll conducted by DHM Research, 66% of Oregonians support the state’s law that finds cannabis to be a legal product; this is a 10% increase in support from 2014, when Measure 91 was approved with 56% of the vote. The survey found only 28% of Oregonians to have an “unfavorable” opinion of the new law. By comparison, only 17% have a positive view of the pharmaceutical industry.
