ATLANTA — Most voters in Georgia now say that marijuana should be legal for recreational purposes, according to an exclusive poll commissioned by 11Alive News and conducted by SurveyUSA.
According to the poll, 55 percent of Georgia voters believe that recreational marijuana should be legalized, while 35 percent said it should remain against the law.
Two years ago, 48 percent supported legalizing recreational marijuana. At that time, opposition was at 38 percent.
Medical marijuana has slowly expanded in Georgia in the past few years. The state's first medical marijuana bill was passed by the General Assembly in 2015 and covers more than 15 other medical conditions.
