Opposition to federal crackdown on legal pot states overwhelming

A new Quinnipiac University poll shows support for legalizing pot at the highest level in the history of the poll: 60% in favor vs. 34% against.

The poll also found overwhelming opposition to President Trump’s proposed federal crackdown on states that have legalized marijuana.

Poll respondents oppose enforcing federal anti-marijuana laws in states that have legalized recreation and medicinal marijuana by a 73% to 21% margin. An even larger margin — 76% to 18% — say marijuana should be rescheduled from Schedule 1 where the government falsely claims that marijuana has both a high potential for abuse and no medical uses.

“Marijuana has made it to the mainstream,” said  Quinnipiac pollster Tim Malloy.
