Columbus, OH: Most Ohio voters support regulating the adult use of cannabis, while a super-majority endorses legalizing the plant for therapeutic purposes, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released last week.
Fifty-one percent of respondents support "allowing adults in Ohio to legally possess small amounts of marijuana for personal use." Forty-four percent of respondents opposed the idea.
Respondents most likely to favor legalization include those ages 18 to 29 (72 percent), Independents (61 percent), men (59 percent), and Democrats (56 percent). Support is significantly lower among women (44 percent), Republicans (33 percent), and those over the age of 65 (31 percent).
On the issue of legalizing cannabis for therapeutic purposes, voter support rose to 87 percent - with the issue receiving super-majority support from respondents of every age and political affiliation.
The Quinnipiac poll possesses a margin of error of +/- 2.7 percentage points.
