The pollster notes that the 22-point margin shows an increase in support for legalization since the state’s ballot measure in 2012 passed by 10 points.
However, while a majority in the state favor legalization, few have yet to partake themselves in using marijuana. Only 8 percent say they’ve used the drug since it became legal in January and 89 percent say they have not used it.
