New Jersey lawmakers may still be working out details on just how to legalize marijuana. But one thing is for certain: The majority of the state’s residents are for it, according to a new poll.
Results of a Monmouth University poll, released Monday morning, show 62 percent of adults in the Garden State support a law that would permit small amounts of cannabis for adult recreational use.
“The overwhelming sentiment in New Jersey is that overall this is a good idea,” said the Monmouth University Polling Institute’s Patrick Murray.
The Monmouth poll also found that the majority of New Jersey residents — 74 percent — support giving people who were previously convicted of possessing small amounts of cannabis a way to expunge those charges from their record.
