Poll: Half of Missourians support marijuana legalization
Show-Me Cannabis Regulation, a Missouri-based marijuana-legalization advocacy group, released a poll this week that showed half of Missourians support legalization of marijuana. A year ago, The Pitch wrote about Show-Me Cannabis Regulation’s attempt to get a measure on the statewide ballot.
The poll asked voters if they would support legalization using nearly the same wording that appeared on a ballot measure the group attempted to get on the ballot last year. Under the legalization plan, the state would tax pot and allow anyone 21 and older to smoke legally. It also would allow homeowners to plant small marijuana patches on their property.
