New York voters support legalizing marijuana by a nearly two-to-one ratio, according to a new poll released on Tuesday.
The Siena College survey found that 60 percent of registered voters in the state back legalizing cannabis, compared to 32 percent who oppose the reform. That’s up significantly from February, when a poll showed support for ending marijuana prohibition ahead by a margin of 55 percent to 40 percent.
The new finding is “the strongest support legalization has ever had in a Siena College poll,” the school said in a press release.
Nearly every demographic across age, party, regional and racial lines has majority or plurality support for legalizing cannabis.
