Legalization of Recreational Marijuana
A referendum on whether to legalize recreational marijuana for individuals aged 21 and older will also appear on the ballot this November. Fifty-nine percent of Maryland residents indicate they will vote in favor of the legalization of recreational marijuana, and 34 percent say they will vote against it. Seven percent are currently undecided. These attitudes closely align with those measured by the Goucher College Poll over the last decade. Sixty-two percent of voters believe that if voters do decide to legalize recreational marijuana the state should then expunge the records of those charged with or convicted of marijuana use and/or possession crime and 29 percent say the state should not.
And of the issues tipping voters one way or the other---overwhelmingly the economy, not so much the Dobbs case on abortion.
