Those three states are absolutely vital to any Presidential campaign victory, and every candidate knows that. It just so happens that marijuana reform is very popular in those states according to a recent poll released by Quinnipiac University. The poll found out the following:

  • Florida voters support legalizing personal marijuana use 51 – 45 percent. Men support it 57 – 41 percent, with women narrowly opposed 49 – 46 percent. Support is 66 – 30 percent among voters 18 to 34 years old, 52 – 44 percent among voters 35 to 49 years old and 55 – 43 percent among voters 50 to 64 years old. Voters over 65 are opposed 56 – 39 percent. But 65 percent of voters say they would “definitely not” use marijuana if it were legalized. Voters support legalizing medical marijuana 87 – 12 percent.
  • Ohio voters support legalizing personal marijuana use 53 – 44 percent. Men support it 59 – 38 percent. Women are divided, with 47 percent in favor and 49 percent opposed. Support is 70 – 25 percent among voters 18 to 34 years old, 59 – 39 percent among voters 35 to 49 years old and 50 – 46 percent among voters 50 to 64 years old. Voters over 65 are opposed 64 – 33 percent. Again, 65 percent of voters say they would “definitely not” use marijuana if it were legalized. Voters support legalized medical marijuana use 90 – 9 percent.
  • Pennsylvania voters are divided on legalizing personal marijuana use, with 47 percent in favor and 49 percent opposed. Men support it 52 – 44 percent, with women opposed 53 – 43 percent. Support is 66 – 33 percent among voters 18 to 34 years old and 51 – 45 percent among voters 35 to 49 years old. Voters 50 to 64 years old are divided 48 – 47 percent and voters over 65 are opposed 64 – 32 percent. Even if marijuana were legalized, 66 percent of voters say they would “definitely not” use it. Voters support legalizing medical marijuana 90 – 9 percent.

Tom Angell from the Marijuana Majority had the following to say about the poll results:

“These results clearly show why supporting the right of states to enact marijuana reforms without federal interference is quickly becoming the default, mainstream position among candidates in both parties.”

    Wake up women opposed to legal weed! How can anyone who cares about domestic violence think it’s wise policy having alcohol as the only legal high? It’s bloody insane.

  2.  

    Ohio “voters support legalized medical marijuana use 90 – 9 percent.”

    Only one way they are going to get it in the foreseeable future, vote for RO, and then they should work to fix it.

    Unbelievable the contempt the Republicans who rule Ohio are showing for public opinion.

    These numbers (66% would never use it) are NOT good for the short term in PA. NOTHING will change before 2020 and that’s TOO FUCKING LONG TO WAIT!!!!

    This is great news. Especially for America’s Cancer Patients.

    I’m a Scientist with a strong interest in Cancer Research.

    I’ve seen WAY too many people die of Cancer.

    No matter what your reason is for working for the legalization of Marijuana,– WORK HARDER — Because Cancer Patients Can’t wait.

    This year, 1.6 MILLION AMERICANS WILL BE DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER — AND EVENTUALLY, HALF OF THEM WILL DIE FROM IT — AFTER SUFFERING HORRIBLY.

    Every American with Cancer deserves the right to have safe, legal, access to Medical Marijuana.

    Every. Single. One.

    If you’re an American man, you’ve got a 1 out of 2 chance of getting Cancer and 1 out of 2 chance of dying from it.
    If you’re an American woman, you’ve got a 1 out of 3 chance of getting Cancer, and a 1 out of 2 chance of dying from it.

    Cancer isn’t just an incredibly painful way to die — the pain is beyond human description — there’s nothing else like it — Cancer is incredibly commonplace.

    If you’e working for the legalization of Marijuana — WORK HARDER

    The life you save, or at the pain and suffering you help reduce will either be your own, or that someone you love — and seeing a loved one die of Cancer is heartbreaking.

    IT IS IMMORAL TO LEAVE MARIJUANA ILLEGAL FOR EVEN ONE SECOND LONGER.

    IT IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT MORAL ISSUES OF ALL TIME.

    We need change at the federal level — NOW!!!

    Americans, including American Children, are suffering and dying needlessly, because they’re being denied the medicine that they need to save their lives.

    WE NEED CHANGE AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL — NOW!!!

    That 53% figure in Ohio means ResponsibleOhio still has their work cut out for them. The more specific you get about passing any law, the fewer people will support it, because people tend to fill in the blanks with what their ideal version of the law would be. RO’s initiative in particular has caused a lot of controversy, and I can’t help but think they might lose more than 3% who would support -a- legalization initiative, but not theirs.

    Poll results are one thing…. Gathering enough valid signatures on a petition to get the issue before voters at the ballot box is entirely another.
