Poll: 62% Of Marylanders Support Marijuana Legalization

September 21st, 2018 by WCBC Radio

The latest poll numbers released this week show that 62% of Marylanders support legalizing recreational use of marijuana- with just 33% opposed. Those numbers are running slightly higher than the national surveys which show marijuana legalization has become increasingly popular with voters, especially younger ones. Earlier this year, the Pew Research Center found 61 percent of Americans support legalization, with support reaching 70 percent among millennials. Efforts to legalize recreational use have failed in recent years, including a defeat in the 2018 General Assembly session.

    Marijuana consumers deserve and demand equal rights and protections under our laws that are currently afforded to the drinkers of far more dangerous and deadly, yet perfectly legal, widely accepted, endlessly advertised and even glorified as an All-American pastime, alcohol.

    Plain and simple!

    Legalize Nationwide!

    It’s time for us, the majority of The People to take back control of our national marijuana policy. By voting OUT of office any and all politicians who very publicly and vocally admit to having an anti-marijuana, prohibitionist agenda! Time to vote’em all OUT of office. Period. Plain and simple.

    Politicians who continue to demonize Marijuana, Corrupt Law Enforcement Officials who prefer to ruin peoples lives over Marijuana possession rather than solve real crimes who fund their departments toys and salaries with monies acquired through Marijuana home raids, seizures and forfeitures, and so-called “Addiction Specialists” who make their income off of the judicial misfortunes of our citizens who choose marijuana, – Your actions go against The Will of The People and Your Days In Office Are Numbered! Find new careers before you don’t have one.

    The People have spoken! Get on-board with Marijuana Legalization Nationwide, or be left behind and find new careers. Your choice.
