Massachusetts is almost assured to become the 18th state to approve of medical marijuana this November. Question 2, which would legalize medical marijuana in Massachusetts, continues to do extremely well in the polling. With less than a month until the election, a new survey of likely voters by Public Policy Polling finds it leading by 16 points. From PPP:

Question 2 would allow a physician licensed in Massachusetts to prescribe medication, at the request of a terminally ill patient meeting certain conditions, to end that person’s life. If the election was today, would you vote yes or no on Question 2?
Yes ………………………………………………………… 56%
No ………………………………………………………… 30%
Undecided ……………………………………………… 14%

Support for the ballot measures remains strong and mostly unchanged throughout the campaign. The PPP from last month had it leading 60 percent yes to 27 percent no, and their poll from August had found it ahead 58 percent yes to 24 percent no.

Given the liberal leanings of the state and the lack of any serious opposition there is no reason to believe support for the initiative will drop significantly in next 26 days.
