Medical Marijuana Amendment in Good Shape but Florida Divided on Legalization

A poll from the University of North Florida (UNF) released on Monday shows a proposed constitutional amendment to legalize medical marijuana that Floridians will vote on in November has an excellent chance of passing.

The poll shows 74 percent of registered voters plan to support the amendment while 22 percent say they plan to vote against it. For a state constitutional amendment to pass, it needs 60 percent of voters.

The poll does show Floridians continue to oppose legalizing marijuana for recreational use by adults. While 11 percent of those somewhat oppose legalizing marijuana for recreational use, 46 percent say they strongly oppose it. But a quarter of those surveyed -- 25 percent -- strongly support legalizing marijuana while 16 percent somewhat support it.

The poll of 507 registered voters in Florida was taken from March 6-16 and had a margin of error of +/- 4.35 percent.

Comments are now closed.
