(January 17, 2018 – Alexandria, VA) – A national poll conducted by Mason Dixon and funded by Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM), found support for non-legalization measures like decriminalization edges out support for full marijuana legalization. In the poll, 49% of likely voters supported legalization whereas 50% supported other policies. One percent were undecided.

“The country is almost evenly split on legalization,” said Brad Coker of Mason-Dixon polling. “When people are given the choices of decriminalization, keeping marijuana illegal, or medical marijuana, cumulatively they slightly prefer these alternatives over legalization.”
