41 percent of respondents said “Marijuana should be legalized for recreational and medical use and taxed,” while 21 percent said “Marijuana should be legalized only for medical purposes when prescribed by a doctor.”

31 percent said, “Marijuana should remain illegal” while 6 percent abstained from the question.
