New polling data, released this past week by the ACLU of Hawaii, shows strong support for marijuana law reform on the islands.
57% of respondents stated that they believed marijuana should be “regulated, taxed, and legalized” and only 39% were opposed. This is up a whopping 20 percentage points in support since they last polled the question in 2005.
The survey also asked about the state’s medical marijuana program. An astounding 81% of respondents said they support the current law and 78% were in favor of passing regulations to allow dispensaries that would provide safe access to cannabis for Hawaii’s patients.
As recent polling has shown, support for marijuana law reform is at an all time high in many states across the nation, now including the original home of the “Choom Gang” and President Obama.
