Good news out of Connecticut – a poll released yesterday from Quinnipiac University revealed 63-percent of voting adults in the state support legalizing small amounts of marijuana for personal use.
Connecticut legalized medical marijuana in 2012 and many state lawmakers have said full on legalization in the sate is inevitable.
Democratic State Representative Edwin Vargas, who already submitted a legalization bill earlier this year, has been one of the most outspoken government officials in favor of legalization.
“People are realizing the war on drugs was a hypocritical thing to begin with”
stated Vargas. “It’s destroyed three generations of young people in the inner cities and it’s time that we recognize that it’s been ineffective.”
With 2016 quickly approaching it seems Connecticut is headed towards a more clear path to legalization.
