Pot Second Thoughts, But No Repeal

A majority of Colorado voters (51%) are beginning to have some regrets about the new reputation as the “Stoner State.” But, they show no desire to reverse the decision to legalize and appear comfortable with the current regulation.

Although half the population claims to have tried marijuana in their lives, current use is shown to be about one-in-ten Colorado adults.

The latest Quinnipiac survey provides the first review of attitudes concerning marijuana since approval in 2012 and the January 2014 launch.

Colorado voters give Governor Hickenlooper a good grade for his positions on marijuana policy (53% approve), which reflects acceptance with strong regulation.

The greatest threat to legalization identified in the poll will be increased traffic accidents. Two-thirds of the people are very concerned about drivers under the influence.
