Election Polls Show South Dakota Will See Cannabis Legalization
According to a new poll released this week, a majority of South Dakota voters support legalizing both recreational and medical marijuana use in the state's e-cigarette market, according to a recent poll by the Center for Public Policy Research at the University of North Dakota. South Carolina, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and Washington D.C. are among the first states to vote on 3 November to legalize cannabis for recreational or medical use.
According to the poll released by Argus Leader Media and KELO-TV, 51% of voters appear to be in favor of recreational marijuana, compared with 44% who said they would vote against the measure. On the other hand, only 23% of respondents say they would vote for the medical pot, while 3% are undecided on this issue. The poll also shows that a majority is in favor of legalizing medical marijuana in South Dakota, with 74% of voters willing to vote yes, according to a poll by the Center for Public Policy Research.
The same poll found that a majority of voters will vote for Donald Trump in the presidential election. While there appears to be broad support in South Dakota for legalizing weed, the state's governor, Kristi Noem, has not yet commented on the issue. New Jersey and Montana are expected to join the legal weed industry, while other states will vote on Election Day on whether or not to legalize marijuana through measures.
Mississippi Republican Governor John Boehner has put out an ad urging residents to vote against the measure, and the Mississippi Compassionate Care group has sent a letter of support for their efforts. As the state votes on medical marijuana on November 3, President Trump's campaign is urging groups supporting the initiative to halt their efforts, even though the president and a majority of Republicans support them.
The Trump campaign sent a letter to the group saying that Mississippi voters who may be persuaded to vote against Initiative 65 should believe that President Trump supports the measure. Trump, it is said, has never declared his support for the initiative, and his campaign team said he was "deeply concerned" about the impact on the state's health care system.
