Medical Marijuana Amendment in Solid Shape in New Poll
Activists led by attorney John Morgan are looking to pass a state constitutional amendment in 2014 that would legalize medical marijuana use in the Sunshine State and a new poll shows it could well pass. Proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution need to pass with 60 percent approval at the ballot box.
Public Policy Polling (PPP), a firm with connections to prominent Democrats, released a poll on Thursday which finds that 62 percent of those surveyed support medical marijuana while 26 percent oppose it. The poll finds independents overwhelmingly support it, 74 percent to 17 percent, while 68 percent of Democrats support it though 20 percent of them oppose it. Support among Republicans is not as strong but 46 percent of them support it and 41 percent oppose it.
The poll of 579 registered Florida voters was taken from Sept. 27- 29 and had a margin of error of +/- 4.1 percent.
