Support for legalizing marijuana in New York outpaces opposition by a margin of two to one, according to a new poll.
Respondents were asked to rate their level of support for a variety of policy issues. On legalizing cannabis, 61 percent of New Yorkers said they’re in favor of enacting the reform at the state level, compared to 30 percent who are opposed. Nine percent said they’re undecided.
In a separate question, sixty percent of those surveyed similarly said they back federal marijuana legalization, while 30 percent said they’re against the policy and 10 percent weren’t sure.
