Colorado voters are poised to legalize marijuana possession in November, according to a new Denver Post poll. It found that 51 percent of likely voters favored Amendment 64, which would legalize possession of up to one ounce of marijuana for those age 21 and older, while just 40 percent opposed. Every age group except those 65 and older supported the measure. The Post notes that this “is the first independent poll to find more than 50 percent support.”
Meanwhile, a SurveyUSA poll found narrow opposition to a similar ballot initiative in Oregon. 37 percent of Oregonians support legalization while 41 percent oppose.
