Support for a proposed constitutional amendment that would make possession, consumption and recreational use of marijuana legal in Colorado continues to hover around the 50 percent mark, according to a new poll released Tuesday.
The latest release from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP) shows 47 percent of likely Colorado voters support Amendment 64, which would treat marijuana comparably to alcohol if passed, while 38 pecent are opposed — a mirror image to the results of PPP's survey a month ago. Because of the somewhat confusing nature of the ballot language, PPP also asked Colorado voters if they simply favor or oppose the legalization of marijuana. While 49 percent expressed support for legalization, 43 percent came out against.
Amendment 64 will appear on the Colorado ballot this November.
