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.”
