Oregon Marijuana Legalization Measure Winning in Latest Poll
It looks like Oregon will be the third state to legalize marijuana. The latest SurveyUSA poll for KATU finds Measure 91 with majority support. If approved, the measure would legalize, tax and regulate marijuana for adults 21 and over.
The poll found 52 percent of likely voters planning to vote for the ballot measure, while 41 percent are planning to vote no. The remaining 7 percent are undecided.
Not surprisingly the measure enjoys overwhelming support among voters under 35 but it’s opposed by a majority of senior citizens.
During the 2012 election SurveyUSA proved to be pretty accurate in their final polls of the marijuana legalization measures in Colorado and Washington state.
