STATEWIDE POLL OF ACTIVE AND LIKELY 2018 VOTERS
FREQUENCY REPORT OF SURVEY RESPONSES – 600 SAMPLE – ERROR ±4.0%
Polling Dates: February 24, 2018 through February 27, 2018

Commissioned by Michigan NORML
The Michigan Affiliate of the
National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws
Here is the question all survey respondents were asked:
If enough valid petition signatures are collected, a proposal may appear on a future election ballot
relating to the issue of marijuana. The proposal would make the possession and cultivation of limited
amounts marijuana legal in the State of Michigan for adults age 21 or older. Also, it would allow the
sale of marijuana to adults age 21 or older only by stores that would be licensed by the state, and finally,
it would tax the sale of marijuana by these state licensed stores. If this proposal were to appear on a
future election ballot, if the election were held today, would you vote yes to approve of the proposal, or
would you vote no to oppose it?
[IF VOTING YES/NO, ASK: “Would you definitely vote (yes/no), or probably vote (yes/no)?” AND CODE BEST RESPONSE]
[IF UNDECIDED, ASK: “Well, if the election were held today and you had to decide right now, would you lean toward voting yes to approve of the proposed law or no to oppose it?” AND CODE BEST RESPONSE]
The responses were:
45% Definitely vote yes
13% Probably vote yes
3% Lean toward voting yes
61% TOTAL VOTE YES
35% TOTAL VOTE NO
28% Definitely vote no
6% Probably vote no
1% Lean toward voting no
Clearly, Michigan voters favor changing current state laws about the possession and use of marijuana. The largest percentage of voters ever, a whopping 61 percent now favors the legalization of marijuana for adults and also believe that it should be regulated like alcohol.
