Medical Marijuana has More Support Than Any Other Ballot Proposition. New Poll Shows 52 Percent of Voters Back Prop 203

Proposition 203, which would legalize medical marijuana if voters approve it on November 2, has more support in a recent poll than any other ballot proposition.
​Medical marijuana has the most support of any ballot proposition for the November 2 election, a new survey of likely voters shows.

Fifty-four percent of registered voters, and 52 percent of likely voters, would vote "yes" on Proposition 203, says the latest Rocky Mountain Poll

If you're thinking, "There's no way it could have that much support in this right-wing-dominated state unless conservatives like it," you're right. 

As the poll results show, plenty of Republicans, conservatives and older folks want to "just say no," as Nancy Reagan told them to do. That's no surprise.

The big shocker here is how many Republicans, conservatives and older folks want the right to get high if they need and/or want to.

For instance, while 48 percent of Republicans and 40 percent of self-described "conservatives" oppose Prop 203, a solid 40 percent of Republicans and 50 percent of conservatives support it.

If it does, the pot stores are ready to open. As Howie Fischer of Capitol Media Services reported on September 26, one store already has a Web site up where you can "pre-register" for a medical marijuana card.

We'll go out on a limb and say that thing will probably pass.

Here's hoping it passes! Big Pharma rushes all sorts of scary drugs onto the market in which our doctors are happy to prescribe at the drop of a hat BUT marijuana is still prohibited. Disgraceful.

the federal medical marijauna act of 1978 has given 33 petients prescriptions from the federal govt for marijauna, and VA hospitals are now allowing petients with a prescription to use it in VA clinics and hospitals on federal property, any more questions

You would think Arizona would be all for it, at least that was my assumption. I don't live there, but when I think of Arizona, I only know it from reading about the Natives, admiring the beautiful photos in Arizona Highways, and trade-shows out of Tucson, Scottsdale & Phoenix (gems, crystal & bead jewelry) so I always thought of the State as being of natural beauty and spiritual (Sedona), ... whoda thought?!! - Join TheHempNetwork/kimbaslair.com - FREE NOW while it's in pre-launch: It's medically, environmentally and economically sound, not to mention, in demand!

too bad federal law still trumps it and we have a sherriff that wont enforce the state law.

Nothing legitimizes your cause and business quite like Comic Sans.

This is the most backwards state in the union. People in Alabama will be mocking us. Kentucky too.

It's still worthwhile. Joe won't be around forever. Pearce can't mess with it since they fixed the initiative process. If the state law allows and the feds won't interfere, we should have at least a year or so of medical cannabis in Arizona. I'm betting the feds will have their hands FULL when Prop 19 passes in California. The wall is beginning to crumble.
