Poll: 74% of US voters support bill protecting state-legal marijuana programs

Public support for a states’ rights approach to marijuana legalization is solidifying, at a time when momentum is building in Congress for exactly such reform.

Nearly three in four American voters (74%) support legislation that would protect states with legal medical and recreational marijuana programs from federal prosecution, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll.

Sen. Cory Gardner, a Colorado Republican, and Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, plan soon to introduce a bipartisan bill that would provide states with the authority to decide on marijuana laws for themselves.

Gardner said recently he received personal support from President Trump for the approach.

Separately, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, has said he would introduce legislation that includes a states’ rights approach.

Despite public support and momentum on the Hill, some experts remain skeptical that MJ federal reform will occur before the midterm elections in November.
