New Jersey voters will decide whether to legalize adult-use cannabis this fall after lawmakers decided to place the issue on the state’s November ballot, and a new poll has revealed that the majority of voters support the legalization measure, according to an NJBIZ.com report.
In the first in a series of polls, Brach Eichler LLC’s cannabis law practice and DKC Analytics questioned 500 registered New Jersey voters from July 7 through July 12, the news outlet reported.
Sixty-eight percent of respondents said they would vote in favor of the ballot question in November, while 26% indicated they would oppose the measure and 6% said they were unsure, according to NJBIZ.com.
Seventy-eight percent of Democrats indicated support for legalization, while 19% said they would oppose it, the news outlet reported. Fifty-seven percent of Republicans answered in favor of legalization with 39% opposed, and Independents had 63% in support of the measure and 27% opposed.
A Monmouth University poll, released in April, also found strong support for cannabis legalization with sixty-one percent of roughly 700 registered voters indicating that they would vote in favor this fall.
