JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) – A California based research company revealed that more than 80% of Mississippians support medical marijuana.
FM3 Research says it conducted telephone surveys with 600 Mississippians likely to vote in the November 2020 general election.
“In principle, four in five (81%) Mississippi voters support doctors being able to recommend medical marijuana to patients with medical conditions and serious illnesses,” wrote the pollsters in a key findings memo, “and more than two-thirds (68%) do so strongly.”
The company said the results show that Mississippians strongly favor permitting access to medical marijuana through Initiative 65.
Mississippi voters will have a choice to vote on this issue on November 3.
Voters will have a choice between Initiative 65, which was placed on the ballot with the signatures of 228,000 Mississippians, or Alternative 65A, which was placed on the by ballot by the state legislature.
