A recent telephone survey of 511 Republicans found that 77% of them support legalizing medical marijuana. Seventy-one percent support in-state cultivation in controlled environments. Republicans are known for opposing marijuana law reform, so the poll’s results are very uplifting.
Representative Peake noted that almost 3,200 Georgians are registered to receive marijuana oil since the law passed 2 years ago, reports Atlanta Business Chronicle. Peake stressed that more can be done. Lawmakers need to take a few more steps, especially allowing in-state cultivation of medical marijuana.
Peake said, “The data shows that Georgians are compassionate people who do not want to see sick people suffer needlessly when a safe and effective treatment is available. Georgia is behind the rest of the nation…because we have not updated our laws.”
Younger voters showed more support for the legalization of marijuana oil, according to the Tarrance Group of Alexandria, VA. Men showed less support than women.
