84. Legalization of recreational mj polls about even now in CA
tho support for the proposition was over 50% in Sept. The polls vary, depending upon whether someone is replying to a person (lower support) or replying anonymously. The vote will depend upon turn out among young voters and democrats.

BUT the issue in California is legalization of RECREATIONAL use. That is not the same as legalization of medical mj. The nationwide polls for legalization of medical marijuana remain at 70% nationwide. (The variation I noted was in state-by-state polls v. national polls.)

California already has legal medical marijuana. So do 13 other states and Washington DC. Another dozen or so states are in the process of debating or voting on this issue.

Nevertheless, the trend is toward legalization across the nation. If numbers continue as they have over the last decade, a large majority will support total legalization within the next decade - across the nation, not just in CA.

Gallup Polls note that nationwide, 46% indicate support for legalization of recreational use. Not medical use, which remains far above 50%.

In other words, the trend is toward legalization.
