Tallahassee, FL: Survey data just released by Quinnipiac University revealed that 82% of Florida voters support reforming state law to allow for the medicinal use of marijuana, only16% were opposed. This poll marks the highest level of support yet for legalizing medicinal use in the Sunshine State.
Support was strongest among Independents (88%) and Democrats (87%) and weakest among Republicans (70%). Not a single demographic group supported this reform by less than 70%.
This data would suggest that if medical marijuana were put to the voters it would be overwhelmingly approved.
Floridians are still divided on their support for the legalization of marijuana for recreational use. When surveyed, 48% said they would support the legalization of personal possession for any reason and 42% said they were opposed.
