High Time for Hawaii to Legalize the Shaka Bud?

By Nathan Eagle 01/10/2013

Legalize it. Regulate it. And tax the hell out of it.

More than half of Hawaii voters want the state to follow the lead of Colorado and Washington and make recreational marijuana legal for adults, a new poll shows.

But they donít want the stateís pot reform efforts to end there. The survey also shows surging support for establishing medical marijuana dispensaries and decriminalizing possession of small amounts of pakalolo.

The Drug Policy Action Group, partnering with the American Civil Liberties Union of Hawaii, recently commissioned QMark Research to do a study. That poll of 600 Hawaii voters, conducted between Nov. 19 and Dec. 4, 2012, revealed these key findings:

78 percent support a dispensary system for medical marijuana
69 percent think jail time for marijuana offenses is inappropriate
57 percent favor legalized, taxed and regulated marijuana (a 20 percent jump from the last poll, conducted in 2005).
