California Wants Legal Marijuana

“More polling evidence is in: Californians support Proposition 19, the statewide ballot initiative to legalize marijuana.” The Atlantic’s Chris Good on the prospect of legalization.

“After an up-and-down year of polling on the topic, a preponderance of evidence now weighs in favor of Californians supporting legalization, as the latest poll from Field Research, released on Sunday, shows Prop. 19 passing 49-42 percent. This follows a poll last week from North-Carolina-based Public Policy Polling, whose automated survey showed Californians supporting Prop. 19 47-38 percent. Field’s latest poll is the most significant to be released thus far, and here’s why. Field is probably the most respected polling firm in California, and, until today, its numbers had showed Prop. 19 failing.”
