Poll shows 67% support medical marijuana amendment


Two-thirds of Florida voters support a proposed constitutional amendment that would broadly legalize medical marijuana, according to a Florida Atlantic University poll released Wednesday.

The poll said 67 percent of voters support Amendment 2 on the Nov. 8 ballot, while about 30 percent oppose it.

That would be enough support to top a 60 percent threshold for approving constitutional amendments. A similar ballot proposal failed in 2014, when it received about 58 percent of the vote.

The poll of 500 likely voters was conducted from Friday to Sunday and has a margin of error of 4.3 percentage points.
