Nine months after Colorado shops opened their doors to sell the first bags of recreational marijuana, a majority of state residents still support legal weed sales.
A new NBC News/Marist Poll shows that 55 percent of adult Colorado residents back the law that legalized the regulated use, possession and sale of cannabis by adults. The poll found that 41 percent oppose the law, including 8 percent who said they are actively trying to overturn the legislation.
The supportive majority combines the 27 percent of adults who actively support the law with the 28 percent who favor the law but do not actively support it. Among registered voters, 52 percent said they favor the law, with 26 percent actively supporting it and 26 percent favoring but not actively supporting it. Forty-five percent of registered voters oppose it, including 9 percent who are actively working to overturn the law.
