82 Percent of Voters in Florida Back Medical Marijuana

82 Percent of Voters in Florida Back Medical Marijuana | Just Say Now

Florida's ready
Almost everyone in the state of Florida supports the idea of medical marijuana. A new Quinnipiac poll found an incredible 82 percent of Florida voters think using marijuana for medical purposes should be legal with a doctor's prescription. Only 16 percent oppose this change.
Medical marijuana has overwhelming support among every generation, partisan leaning, and ethnic group. Even 79 percent of senior citizens back medical marijuana and they tend to be the group least supportive of any marijuana reforms.

This strong support is good news because there is currently an effort underway to get a constitutional amendment legalizing medical marijuana on the 2014 ballot. If the campaign succeeds it will need to be approved by at least 60 percent off voters to be adopted, which should be achievable based on this poll

The poll also found a narrow plurality support legalizing recreational cannabis, with 48 percent in support of legalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana and 48 percent opposed. On this issue there is a large generational divide. It has majority support of voters under the age of 65 but senior citizens oppose it 32-60. It is only a matter of time before a clear majority of the state backs full legalization.
