A new poll from the Portland Press Herald, the largest paper in the state, finds support for legalization far ahead of the opposition.
The poll says that 53 percent of Mainers support legalization, with 38 opposed and 10 percent undecided.
The measure, Question 1, is on the November ballot. It provides for adult use of marijuana and social clubs; for growing to be regulated by the state’s agriculture department, and personal possession of six plants.
From the story:
There have been relatively few publicly released polls on marijuana legalization in Maine. The 53 percent support in the Press Herald poll is similar to the 55 percent support identified in a March poll of statewide voters by Critical Insights in Portland. Yet support for legalization was at 65 percent in a spring 2015 poll conducted by Critical Insights, raising the prospect that some voters are taking a closer look at the issue now that the campaign is in full gear.
Maine adopted medical marijuana in 1999.
