According to a new statewide poll, a majority of Michigan voters support the legalization, taxation and regulation of marijuana.

The Marketing Resource Group survey of 600 likely voters revealed 51 percent support for legalizing marijuana “if it was regulated and taxed like alcohol.” Another 45 percent of respondents were opposed.

Support for legalization was highest amongst Democrats and young people. However, only 36 percent of self-identified Republicans offered support. Likewise, only 37 percent of voters over the age of 65 said they support legalization, while 50 percent were “strongly” opposed.
