A new poll shows Michigan’s marijuana legalization campaign Proposal 1 on November’s ballot, is currently poised to pass with 56% support.
Of those surveyed, 56% support the legalization proposal, while 38% were opposed. Six percent remain undecided.
Age, not political affiliation, was the largest factor for support of the proposal, pollsters found. While only 37% of voters over age 65 supported legalizing marijuana in Michigan, a whopping 79% of 18-29 year olds and 72% of 30-39 year olds support the proposal.
The poll reflects a continued trend of marijuana legalization consistently polling strong in Michigan.
The poll, conducted by the Glengariff Group for The Detroit News and WDIV-TV, surveyed 600 voters from September 5-7. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 4%.
If Michigan voters approve Proposal 1 in November, Michigan would become the 10th state to legalize marijuana possession for adults, and the second most populous state to do so, behind California. Michigan would also become the first state in the Midwest to legalize marijuana, and could lead to neighboring states, such as Illinois and Ohio, to follow suit.
