In the recent DU/Crossley Center poll, 53 percent of Colorado voters said no to a question asking if they wanted recreational marijuana sales expanded in Colorado.
Peter Roper reported in the Pueblo Chieftain (11-5-16):
Colorado voters may have reached their limit on recreational marijuana, according to a new statewide poll that shows 53 percent of likely voters don’t want recreational pot sales expanded, while 35 percent do.
That’s not the same question that state voters faced in 2012, when 55 percent voted to legalize recreational marijuana.
But this latest survey could be a sign that voters are now viewing pot differently, said pollster Floyd Ciruli, who did the survey of 550 voters over the Halloween weekend.
“It’s not the question that Pueblo voters are facing on Nov. 8 — to repeal the licenses of recreational pot businesses — but we may be seeing signs that public support for recreational marijuana has hit its high point,” Ciruli said.
“But everyone is watching what happens in Pueblo because of the possible repeal of marijuana licenses,” Ciruli said.
