As of February, the state’s marijuana program has more than 72,000 patients served by seven dispensaries, as well as more than 2,000 caregivers and 1,000 doctors.
“Support for the marijuana ballot measure is widespread in part because many who have no opinion on whether legalization is a good idea figure they might as well vote for it,” Pat Murray, the institute’s director, said in the Thursday morning report.
Twenty-seven percent of residents responded that legalization could lead to an increase in other drug crimes, while 22 percent said there would be a decrease. The majority – 46 percent – felt that legalization would not have any impact on crimes elsewhere.
Thursday’s poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percent.
