Poll Finds 3 out of 4 Ohio Voters Support Legalizing Medical Cannabis

ohioApproximately three out of four Ohio voters support amending the state constitution to legalize the medical use of cannabis, according to a new poll by Public Policy Polling released today.

The survey of 672 randomly selected Ohio voters was conducted February 17-18, just as advocates are preparing to launch a campaign in support of a constitutional ballot initiative to legalize medical cannabis. It found 74% of voters in favor and only 22% opposed with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.8%.

“It’s become pretty common knowledge that marijuana can be incredibly beneficial in the treatment of a variety of medical conditions,” said Mason Tvert, a spokesperson for Ohioans for Medical Marijuana (OMM), a committee that has been formed to support the forthcoming initiative.
