Is California going to pot?
SAN FRANCISCO – (INT) – Federal laws against marijuana may go up in a puff of smoke if Californians had their way.
A poll issued by the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) found 60% of those questioned opposed to the Trump Administration’s enforcement of federal laws. Strong majorities of Democrats (72%) and independents (68%) as well as a slight majority of Republicans (51%) say the federal government should not enforce these laws.
Local governments are considering regulations to implement marijuana legalization. About half of adults (48%) and likely voters (53%) favor retail sales of recreational marijuana in their communities.
Residents of Orange/San Diego (43%) are the least likely to favor retail sales, compared with about half of residents in other regions of the state, the PPIC found.
