The poll clearly shows younger resident have a different perspective from older ones. No surprise as the older generations happily believe the lies business and politicians have spewed over the last 100 years.
%90 of those asked support Medical Marijuana and %52 would support recreational use of Cannabis in the state.
By a slight 52 – 45 percent majority, with a wide age gap, Connecticut voters support “allowing adults…to legally possess small amounts of marijuana for personal use,” according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
By a huge 90 – 9 percent margin, voters support the medical use of marijuana. Support ranges from 84 – 14 percent among voters over 65 years old to 99 – 1 percent among voters 18 to 29 years old. Voters also support 69 – 28 percent having a medical marijuana dispensary in their town or city, this independent poll finds.
On the question of so-called recreational marijuana use, voters 18 to 29 years old support the idea 80 – 20 percent, while voters over 65 years old are opposed 61 – 34 percent. Men back recreational marijuana 54 – 42 percent, with women divided 49 – 48 percent.
About half of Connecticut voters, 47 percent, admit trying marijuana. Some attitudes about marijuana include:
61 percent of voters say alcohol is more harmful to a person’s health, while 16 percent say marijuana is more harmful and 18 percent say both are harmful;
If marijuana were more widely available, 55 percent of voters say alcohol would be more harmful to society, while 28 percent say marijuana would be more harmful;
Legalizing marijuana would lead to more underage use, voters say 59 – 37 percent.
“A slight majority of Connecticut voters favor legalizing marijuana for recreational use, with huge age and party gaps. While 90 percent support the current law allowing medical marijuana, support drops to 69 percent who would want a medical marijuana dispensary in their town,” said Douglas Schwartz, PhD, director of the Quinnipiac University poll.
The poll also focused on death penalty and gun issues in the state of Connecticut. The state still has “Blue Laws” on the books that restrict alcohol sales.
