Poll shows more opposition to medical marijuana

(KAIT) - The latest poll conducted by Talk Business and Politics and Hendrix College shows more people are against the two marijuana proposals on the November ballot.

The statewide poll was conducted on Oct. 21 and surveyed 463 likely voters. The margin of error for the poll is +/- 4.6%

The Medical Marijuana Amendment, or Issue 6, would allow physicians-certified cannabis for limited purposes while the Medical Cannabis Act, or Issue 7, would allow for physician-certified cannabis and a "hardship certificate" which would allow those living far enough away from a dispensary to grow a limited amount of marijuana for medical purpose.

Those surveyed were asked if the election was held on that day, how would they vote on both proposals.

When it came to Issue 6, 45% of those surveyed would vote for the proposal, 50% would vote against, and 5% do not know how they would vote.

In September, 49% would vote for the proposal while 43% would vote against the proposal.

On Issue 7, 40% would vote for it, 53% would vote against it, and 7% did not know how they would vote.

In September, 36% said they would vote for Issue 7 while 53% would vote against the proposal.
