Poll: Most Michigan voters oppose legalizing recreational pot


Michigan voters aren’t yet ready to support legalizing small amounts of marijuana for recreational use, according to a new survey.

The poll found that 51.2% of Michigan voters oppose recreational pot, while 41.8% support it.

That comes six years after voters overwhelmingly supported medicinal marijuana.

But there is good news for proponents of legalization: 59.8% of people ages 18 to 29 support recreational pot. In that age group, just 39.4% oppose legalization.

By contrast, 64.5% of voters ages 65 years and older oppose legalization.

The Detroit News/WDIV-TOV had a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

To date, two states have legalized pot for recreational use – Colorado and Washington, where voters approved the change in 2012. Voters in California and Oregon struck down legalization efforts at the poll.

Pot remains illegal on the federal level.

    The only reason Michigan does not want pot legal is because ofallthe young kids that are like 16-18 smoking pot.bit you know what man did not create’s a plant it was growning and someone discoverd what it was. So the fore the government should have no say in wether or not we should be allowed to smoke pot.

    Throwing people in jail and getting them “into the system”. Is nothing more than a cash grab for the state. Make alcohol illegal then far worse than a little pot.
