- Nearly two-thirds of Pennsylvanians support legalizing marijuana for adults and establishing a statewide system to regulate and tax sales including majorities of the state’s conservative, moderate and liberal voters.
- That’s according to a new statewide survey, commissioned by the Pennsylvania Cannabis Coalition (PCC) industry group and conducted by Harrisburg-based Harper Polling, that found 62 percent of likely voters in favor of legal, regulated sales to adults 21 and over.
- The poll suggests that one reason for the broad support for legalization is financial: Voters across all key demographics, the survey found, would rather see the state regulate and tax adult-use cannabis as opposed to raising income, sales and business taxes.
- The board would also run certain mission-focused divisions, such as the Office of Medical Cannabis, which would operate the state’s existing medical marijuana program, and the Office of Social Equity, which would promote development, stability, and safety in communities that experienced a disproportionate, negative impact from cannabis prohibition.
