Colorado -- More than half of Coloradans say marijuana legalization has been bad for the state's image, even though a majority also continue to support the new laws, according to a poll released Monday.Fifty-one percent of Coloradans surveyed for a Quinnipiac University poll said they thought legalization has been bad for Colorado's image. However, 58 percent of people said they continue to support marijuana legalization. That's even more than the 54 percent of people who told Quinnipiac pollsters last summer they supported legalization.
Amendment 64, the law that legalized marijuana use for people over 21 in Colorado, passed in November 2012, with 55 percent support.Despite the support for legalization, the poll finds Coloradans more tepid on marijuana use.Ten percent of those surveyed said they had used marijuana since recreational pot shops opened in January. According to Quinnipiac, all survey participants were over 18. That use figure matches almost exactly with what federal researchers found for over-18 use in Colorado in 2011 and 2012 as part of the National Survey on Drug Use and Health.Only 17 percent of those surveyed said they would be somewhat or very likely to try marijuana brownies if a friend brought them to a party. Seventy percent said they would be very unlikely to try them.SnippedComplete Article: Denver Post (CO)Author: John Ingold, The Denver PostPublished: February 10, 2014Copyright: 2014 The Denver Post Website: openforum denverpost.comCannabisNews  -- Cannabis Archives
