Survey: Half Of Polled Michiganders Support Marijuana Legalization
Published on 1/14/15
Marijuana use and possession in Michigan is still illegal if it is not for medical use. Though in November the cities of Ferndale, Jackson and Lansing proposal for 21+ year olds to possess up to an ounce of marijuana passed by a 70% vote. With atleast half of the state supporting legalization, movement towards legalization is imminent.
The figures are higher than those from a survey conducted in September 2013 — rising from 47 percent to 50 percent. Four percent of the 600 people surveyed were undecided.
The poll by EPIC MRA — which was paid for by the Michigan Chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws — shows 46 percent are opposed to a proposal that would make the possession of limited amounts of marijuana legal for those 21 and older.
