Another CA Poll Shows Overwhelming Medical Marijuana Support

| by Marijuana Policy Project

Last week, I posted the results of the MPP-commissioned poll showing that despite outrageous claims
being made by local officials, there is wide support for medical
marijuana among Los Angeles County voters. A new poll now shows that
support for medical marijuana access isn’t confined to Los Angeles.

A poll released Wednesday in San Diego found super-majority support
for medical marijuana in that city. The poll — commissioned by
addiction recovery Web site keepcomingback.com
— found 77% agreement that “officials must make sure that San Diego’s
medical marijuana patients have convenient access to their medicine in
the city.” 70% support regulating the city’s medical marijuana
collectives in some way, while only 9.5% support banning them (3% said
they didn’t need any regulations). The poll also collected other
interesting information about how San Diegans view medical marijuana
sales. Read more about it here.

This poll should send a firm message to San Diego County District
Attorney Bonnie Dumanis, who just last month ordered a series of shocking raids on local medical marijuana patients and suppliers.
