Majority of Floridians Favor Making Marijuana Possession Legal

Majority of Floridians Favor Making Marijuana Possession Legal

Roughly six months before Election Day, Florida voters overwhelmingly support a broad legalization of medical marijuana.

The poll, released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University, said 80 percent of voters support a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow medical marijuana for a wide range of patients.

Among Republicans the amendment garnered over 71 percent support compared to more than 87 percent for Democrats. The poll also showed support of 89 percent of voters ages 18 to 34 and 79 percent of voters who are 65 and older.

Keep in mind that a similar measure in 2014 was polling the same before falling just short of the needed 60% to legalize medical marijuana. Only 58% of Florida voters turned out to support the measure in 2014.

What’s interesting about this poll is the support for legalizing the recreational use of pot. More than 56 % of Floridians polled favor making recreational use of pot legal.

  1. Let’s not just make it legal, lets quit regulating it entirely. Its about time the government gave back what it shouldn’t have taken in the first place. Don’t reward them with increased revenues. Just decriminalize pot.
