According to a new Quinnipiac University poll released on Monday, most American voters believe that veterans suffering from PTSD should have access to marijuana in pill form. By a margin of 87 to 9 percent, voters agreed that VA doctors should be allowed to prescribe medi-pot to vets, with support at 79 percent or high among every party, gender, age or racial group listed.
“If you serve your country and suffer for it, you deserve every health remedy available, including medical marijuana in pill form,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, in a statement. “That is the full-throated recommendation of Americans across the demographic spectrum, including voters in military households. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is debilitating and life-threatening. The response from voters should take political considerations out of the debate and allow doctors to do what’s best for veterans.”
On a broader question about medical marijuana for all adults, the poll found that American voters support access 89 to 9 percent. While voters were more closely divided on the legalization of recreational pot, the majority of Americans still favored legalization with “no other qualifications” by a margin of 54 to 41.
“The fact that a majority of American voters favors legalizing marijuana in general shows how attitudes about the drug have changed,” Malloy explained.
