Medical marijuana amendment above 60% threshold, new poll shows

in Uncategorized by

According to a new survey from Public Policy Polling, Florida’s medical marijuana amendment that will be on the ballot this fall continues to appear headed for easy passage, with 66% of voters saying they support it to just 25% who are opposed. Those numbers are almost identical to 65 to 23 percent when we last polled on it in January, indicating the proposal is not losing any steam.

Democrats and independents are overwhelmingly in support of it, and even Republicans narrowly favor it 44 to 42 percent.
