Majority Of Voters In Arizona, Hawaii Support Legalizing Cannabis Consumption For AdultsPhoenix, AZ: Nearly six out of ten Arizona voters say that they would support a statewide ballot initiative "proposing that marijuana be regulated in a manner similar to alcohol," according to the results of a Public Policy Polling survey of 600 voters.

Fifty-nine percent of respondents said that they favored such a measure according to the poll, which was commissioned by the National Cannabis Industries Association.

Under present law, the possession of cannabis for non-medical purposes in Arizona is classified as a felony offense punishable by up to two years in prison.

Separate statewide polling data published this week by the ACLU of Hawaii reported that 57 percent of residents favor taxing, regulating, and legalizing cannabis use for adults. More than eight out of ten respondents said that they supported the state's existing medical marijuana law, and 78 percent favored expanding the law to allow for cannabis dispensaries.
