The Daily Poll

Poll: Have your views on cannabis legalisation changed?

A number of countries have decriminalised cannabis in the past year.

THIS WEEK, JAMAICA legalised small amounts of weed, and also established a licensing agency to regulate a lawful medical marijuana industry.

It said the move followed changes to drug laws in other countries. In the US, for example, a number of states legalised recreational marijuana use.

But have the changes around the world affected your view on cannabis legalisation, or has it stayed the same?

Today, we’re asking: Have your views on cannabis legalisation changed? 

Poll Results:

No, I've always supported legalislation (4798)
No, I've never supported it and still don't (1830)
Yes - I now support legalisation (1584)
Yes - I no longer support legalisation (182)
