Public Support for Medical Marijuana
A 2006 Polling Company poll found that 86% of New Jerseyans support allowing access to medical marijuana. This was an increase over the 82% support found in a 2002 Eagleton poll. This level of support for access to medical marijuana is in line with other state and national polls that have found overwhelming public support for access to medical marijuana. Between 1996 and 2002 more than 60 state and national polls found overwhelming public support for medical marijuana. Support has increased over time as the public has learned more about the issue.
