There is more good news for the Question 3, which would legalize medical marijuana in Massachusetts. The ballot initiatives already substantial lead in the polls actually grew slightly since last month. By a greater than two to one margin the voters in the state plan to support the initiative according to a new PPP poll of likely voters.

Massachusetts
Public Policy Polling (9/13-16)
Question 3 would eliminate state criminal and civil penalties for the medical use of marijuana by qualifying patients. If the election was today, would you vote yes or no on Question 3?
Yes…………………………………….. 60%
No ……………………………………. 27%
Undecided……………………………14%

The poll found the initiative winning among all age groups and all partisan groups. Democrats overwhelmingly support medical marijuana 67 percent to 20 percent, but it is even backed by a plurality of Republicans. 45 percent of Republicans in the state support it and 41 percent plan to oppose it.

This is a modest improvement from last month when PPP previously polled Massachusetts. In August PPP found that 58 percent of voters planned to support Question 3 and 27 percent planned to vote against it. If the initiative can simply continue to maintain its current level of support it should easily win approval this November and Massachusetts would become the 18th medical marijuana state.
