Poll: Utahns Strongly Support Medical Marijuana Legalization but Oppose Recreational

Two-thirds of Utahns want to legalize medical marijuana prescribed by doctors, a new UtahPolicy poll finds.

Expect a medical marijuana bill to be introduced in the 2017 Legislature. Such a bill failed in the 2016 general session after LDS Church leaders warned that such a measure could do more harm than good.

UPD pollster Dan Jones & Associates finds in a new survey that even more Utahns oppose legalizing marijuana for recreational use – or making its use as legal as alcohol or cigarette products.

Jones finds:

  • 63 percent of Utahns support legalizing medical marijuana prescribed by licensed doctors.
  • 35 percent oppose, and 2 percent don’t know.

Just the opposite is true if asked if marijuana should be legalized for recreational use – as is the case in Colorado and several other states.
