Poll Finds 61 Percent of Michigan Voters Support November's Marijuana Legalization Measure

This November Michigan voters will decide whether or not to approve a ballot initiative to legalize recreational marijuana in the state. And according to a new poll, it will probably pass.

Michigan State University’s Institute for Public Policy and Social Research released a series of polls today about various issues related to the November 2018. According to the poll, 61 percent of Michigan voters support the ballot initiative to legalize recreational marijuana, which is about the same as previous polls on the issue as well. The researchers behind the poll also noted that the marijuana legalization poll had the lowest number of undecided voters, meaning most people have already made up their mind on the issue which could indicate that it's unlikely for there to be a massive swing in support on the initiative.

In more good news for marijuana fans, another poll showed that the leading Democrat for the Michigan gubernatorial race, Gretchen Whitmer, is leading either of the leading Republicans in the race. Whitmer has spoken in favor of legalizing marijuana in the past, which means if the ballot initiative is approved and Whitmer becomes governor, there will be less resistance to actually implementing the law. 

So basically it sounds like Michigan's going to become a much bigger destination in the Midwest.
