Mississippi voters support legalizing marijuana for both medical and recreational use, according to a new poll. In fact, that support is so strong that 20 percent of voters say medical cannabis is the single most important issue that will determine how they vote in upcoming elections—outranking all other issues, including job creation, infrastructure, public safety, and education. Mississippians are fired up over medical marijuana after the state Supreme Court invalidated a reform measure that overwhelmingly passed at the ballot last year. The ruling was related to a procedural flaw in the citizen initiative process. Now, 63 percent of voters say they want the legislature to pass a bill that mirrors the ballot measure, according to the new survey from Millsaps College and Chism Strategies.
