New polls show rec MJ winning in California, Massachusetts

The campaigns to legalize adult-use cannabis in California and Massachusetts are well-positioned to win in November, a trio of polls released this week suggests.

In Massachusetts, a new poll by WBUR/MassINC has found that 50% of voters support the legalization initiative, Question 4, while 45% are opposed and 5% are undecided, MassLive.com reported. It’s the first public poll in months that has found the measure passing; two prior surveys had found Question 4 losing.

In California, a pair of new polls have both found solid voter support, the Denver Post reported. One, by Survey USA, found that 52% of voters are support Proposition 64, also known as the Adult Use of Marijuana Act. A second poll, by the Los Angeles Times and USC Dornsife, found 58% support among voters.

Although those California numbers are down from the 60% support found for legalizing marijuana in general, the two new polls specifically asked about Proposition 64.

Opposition in the first California poll was 40% and 34% in the second.

    Huraah, the dominoes are falling one by one. No room for complacency. Even if you don’t care for all of the other options on the ballot in November, don’t ignore your legalization vote. Remember, polls mean nothing, TURNOUT means everything! The results of these votes can add momentum to legalization efforts in the future in other states.
