More than half of voters in Georgia say marijuana should be legal for all adults, according to a poll commissioned this week by a TV station.
According to the poll, conducted by SurveyUSA for 11Alive News, 55 percent of Georgia voters believe “recreational marijuana” should be legalized, and 35 percent said it should remain against the law.
The majority support is an increase from the last time the station did a similar poll two years ago. At that time, 48 percent were in favor.
Seventy-one percent of survey respondents supported state-regulated cultivation of marijuana to produce legal medical cannabis oil.
While low THC cannabis oil is legal for medical marijuana patients to use in Georgia, it remains illegal to grow cannabis in Georgia for any reason. Leaf marijuana is still illegal in Georgia.
