Poll: 3 out of 5 New Mexicans support marijuana legalization

Marijuana

SANTA FE (AP) – A new poll finds that three out of five New Mexico residents support the legalization and taxation of recreational marijuana.

The survey released Thursday by Albuquerque-based Research & Polling, Inc. found that 61 percent of residents support proposed legislation to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana sales among adults of ages 21 and over.

Support rises to 69 percent when residents are informed that tax revenue generated by marijuana sales would be used to pay for health care and substance abuse programs.

The telephone survey of 406 residents took place on Jan. 8-13. The error margin is 5 percent.

The poll was commissioned by private and nonprofit groups including licensed marijuana producers and the pro-legalization Drug Policy Alliance.
