Colorado, Washington, and Oregon all have measures on the ballot this November to give voters a chance to legalize marijuana in their state – and regulate it like alcohol or tobacco. And in at least one state – Colorado – that measure looks likely to pass. According to a new poll by Public Policy Polling – support for the marijuana legalization Amendment 64 has swelled 47% - with only 38% opposed to it.
PPP breaks down the support for marijuana legalization – finding that Independents are overwhelmingly driving support for the amendment – with 58% of independents supporting legalization in the state – and only 28% oppose. Once a state takes that step to legalizing marijuana – then the Drug War – and it’s billions of wasted dollars, it’s millions of ruined lives, and it’s bloodshed on the border will have a difficult time persisting. Keep an eye on this election.
