A vast majority of Pennsylvanians favor legal medical marijuana according to a recent Franklin & Marshall College poll.

The survey found that 84 percent of registered voters in Pennsylvania have no problem with an adult using medical marijuana if recommended by their doctor. This comes after a bill has been formed and sent to the Senate Appropriations Committee to legalize medical marijuana for the “seriously ill.”

Of those that support medical marijuana, a majority (59 percent) strongly favor its use while only 12 percent of respondents are opposed.

Unfortunately for marijuana proponents, however, the support of medical marijuana in PA has yet to transfer to significant support for legalization. Just 35 percent favor legalization while 57 percent are opposed.
