Poll: For the first time majority of Californians support marijuana legalization

A field poll commissioned by Oaksterdam University between March 16th and March 21st shows for the first time a majority of California voters are in favor of taxing and regulating adult cannabis consumption similar to alcohol. 54% of those polled believed cannabis should be legal for adults while 39% are opposed and 7% are undecided.

A majority of voters indicated they would vote for a measure to allow cities and counties the option to tax and regulate cannabis and make adult cannabis consumption legal (53% Support/41% Do Not Support/7% Undecided) The economic benefits of taxing cannabis persuaded many voters to support the proposed ballot initiative.

58% of California voters believe regulations for cannabis should be the same or less strict than those for alcohol.

Poll Results:

The Same as Alcohol – 50%
More Strict Than Alcohol – 40%
Less Strict Than Alcohol – 8%
Undecided – 2%

Polls were conducted from 600 California voters by EMC research.

  2. The so-called “War On Drugs” isn’t a war on drugs, it’s a war on marijuana. And more specifically, it’s not a war on marijuana, it’s a war on stoners, on heads, on people that use reefer: YOU and ME – peaceful, job holding, tax paying, otherwise law abiding citizens.

    “Booze is GOOD and reefer is BAD”: that’s the message that’s been pushed on Americans for the past several decades, and mainstream America has drunk the kool-aid.

    It’s way past time for change.
