New Jersey lawmakers may still be working out details on just how to legalize marijuana. But one thing is for certain: The majority of the state’s residents are for it, according to a new poll.

Results of a Monmouth University poll, released Monday morning, show 62 percent of adults in the Garden State support a law that would permit small amounts of cannabis for adult recreational use.
