Here’s a new poll heralding a new day — at least in Arizona.
An independent poll released Wednesday shows a majority of Arizona residents support ending marijuana prohibition.
The Behavior Research Center’s latest Rocky Mountain Poll found 53% of Arizonans support making possession of a small amount of marijuana legal for personal use. Just 39% are opposed. Support outpaced opposition in all three of the geographical areas that were surveyed: 53-38 in Maricopa County; 47-43 in Pima County; and 58-38 in Rural Arizona. The survey of 701 Arizonans was conducted from April 29 to May 15 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.8%.
“Arizonans are fed up with the failed policy of marijuana prohibition,” said J.P. Holyoak, chairman of the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, which is supporting a statewide ballot initiative to end marijuana prohibition in Arizona and replace it with a system in which marijuana is regulated and taxed similarly to alcohol. “They do not think adults should be punished just for consuming a substance that is objectively less harmful than alcohol. It’s time for a more sensible approach, and that’s what our initiative proposes.”
