California-based FM3 Research recently conducted a survey in Mississippi that revealed that 81% of the state’s voters support medical cannabis legalization, according to a local WLBT report.
The research company conducted telephone surveys with 600 Mississippians likely to vote in the November election, the news outlet reported, and four in five said they support doctors being able to recommend medical cannabis to patients with medical conditions and serious illnesses.
Mississippi voters will have the chance to vote on two competing medical cannabis measures on the November ballot. Mississippians for Compassionate Care succeeded in qualifying Initiative 65 for the ballot this summer, while state legislators have introduced a competing measure, Alternative 65A.
According to FM3 Research’s survey, voters favor Initiative 65, WLBT reported.
