Poll: 88 Percent Of New Yorkers Support Medical Marijuana

“A new poll finds 88 percent of New York voters support the legalization of marijuana for medical use, and 57 percent also favor legalizing recreational use.” CBS NY reported.

“The Quinnipiac University poll released Monday finds only 9 percent oppose legalizing medical marijuana.

“Maurice Carroll, director of the poll, said a narrow majority doubt that legalizing marijuana will lead to harder drug use, and about half say marijuana is no worse than alcohol.

“Medical marijuana is a no-brainer for New York State voters, and they also would follow Colorado in legalizing marijuana for fun. But a slim plurality don’t think legalization has been good for Colorado’s reputation,” Carroll stated.
