Massachusettes Poll Numbers Favor Medical Marijuana
Massachusetts voters are firmly in support of a November ballot initiative that would legalize the medical use of marijuana, according to recent poll results.
Fifty-eight percent of respondents favored the measure, while 27 percent were opposed and 15 percent were undecided. The poll, conducted by Public Policy Polling, a national firm based in Raleigh, N.C., surveyed 1,115 likely Massachusetts voters last month, asking them, "Question 3 would eliminate state criminal and civil penalties for the medical use of marijuana by qualifying patients. If the election was today, would you vote yes or no on Question 3?"
The results indicate increasing support for the measure; according to earlier PPP polls, in June, 57 percent of respondents were in favor and 33 percent opposed; in March, 53 percent favored the measure and 35 percent were opposed.
