Michigan: Majority Of Voters Want Marijuana Regulated

Lansing, MI: A majority of Michigan voters support changing state law so that the use and cultivation of marijuana by adults is legal, according to polling data provided by the Lansing polling firm EPIC-MRA and commissioned by Michigan NORML.

Fifty-three percent of respondents said they would vote ‘yes’ on a ballot proposal to regulate and tax retail marijuana sales. Forty-five percent of those polled rejected the notion of legalizing marijuana.

The results show an increase in voter support of three percent since pollsters last posed the question in December 2014.

Proponents of MI Legalize are seeking to gather sufficient signatures to place a statewide measure on the November ballot to regulate and tax the production and retail sale of cannabis.
