The latest polling by Public Policy Polling (PPP) shows that Colorado’s Amendment 64 is up with 47% in support and 38% opposed. The proposed amendment is an attempt to end cannabis prohibition in the Centennial State by allowing personal use and cultivation by adults 21 years-of-age and over; establishing a licensed and regulated commercial sales system similar to alcohol regulation; and legalizing the cultivation and sale of industrial hemp.
This poll by PPP is on the heels of a very favorable Rasmussen poll and demonstrates that opposition to the proposed amendment has softened. Previous PPP polling had the marijuana legalization measure supported by 46% of Colorado voters while opposed by 42%. It appears that the ad campaign by the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol has been effective at soothing the concerns of some voters who were inclined to oppose the measure.
Here are two of the ads already released by the campaign. We look forward to promoting more good work and news out of this exciting Colorado campaign.
