DETROIT – If the measure to legalize marijuana in Michigan makes it onto the November ballot, it would most likely get approved by voters according to a new poll.

Fifty-three percent of Michigan residents would vote to approve a ballot proposal to legalize and tax marijuana. The EPIC-MRA poll also says 45 percent of voters would reject the proposal. Two percent was undecided, declined to respond.

In comparison to a similar poll in 2014, 50 percent said they would approve a measure while 46 percent said they would oppose.

The poll was commissioned by the Michigan Chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. It was conducted between March 19 and March 22 and surveyed 600 people across the state. The poll has a 4 percent margin of error.
