New Poll Says an Insanely High Percentage Of Americans Approve of Medicinal Marijuana

It seems like every week a new poll comes out showing more support amongst the American people in favor of marijuana legalization. But sometimes there's a study that still shows some surprising results. And that's exactly what happened with a recent Quinnipiac poll showing nearly universal support for medical marijuana.

Quinnipiac surveyed over 1,000 American voters on a number of issues facing the country today. One of those issues was marijuana legalization. And in a somewhat surprising result, they found that not only did a majority of voters approve of medicinal marijuana, but they did so by a humongous margin.

According to the poll, 94 percent of Americans support legalizing cannabis for medical use. This is compared to only 61 percent of voters who approved of legalizing marijuana entirely. Medicinal use was widely accepted amongst all political affiliations. 90 percent of Republican voters approved of medical marijuana compared to only 37 percent who approved of recreational marijuana.

Another interesting result from the survey revolves around a possible marijuana crackdown by the federal government. The poll asked whether or not voters would support the federal government enforcing anti-marijuana laws in state's with legalized cannabis. 75 percent of all voters said they would not approve such an action, including 59 percent of Republicans. That is certainly not a result Attorney General Jeff Sessions will like to see.

Once again these polls show how American laws, particularly at the federal level, are completely out-of-step with the views and beliefs of the American people.

2020 presidential candidate Cory Booker (D-NJ) has announced a plan to grant clemency to thousands of people serving time for federal drug convictions. Last Thursday, Booker released his 'Restoring Justice' plan, which would offer clemency to more than 17,000 individuals who are currently doing time for nonviolent drug convictions. Booker pledged to implement the plan immediately upon taking office via an executive order as a means to address the huge disparities in drug policing.
