Views: 1    

A new poll shows that voters in Washington, D.C., strongly support the legalization of marijuana and oppose a crackdown on the "gift" market that has emerged in the absence of regulated sales. The survey, commissioned by the I-71 Commission and conducted by the firm Brilliant Corners Research & Strategies, found that 72 percent of voters support legalization and 66 percent said they specifically support the implementation of the District's marijuana reform law. 76 percent of respondents said they want D.C. to "reform current laws to create a more regulated market that would allow sales. Respondents were also asked to assess their concerns about cracking down on the marijuana "gifting" business. For example, 84 percent said they were concerned that enforcement actions could put people of color at greater risk of legal consequences, 70 percent said they were concerned that it would penalize small businesses, and 69 percent said they were concerned about an increase in gun violence.
