Poll: Most Think Marijuana Legalization Hurts Colorado Image

COLORADO:  Fifty-one percent of Colorado voters think legalization of marijuana has been bad for the state’s image a little more than a year after it was approved, a new poll finds.

According to a Quinnipiac poll released Monday, only 38 percent of voters think the policy has been beneficial to Colorado’s image, while 10 percent do not know.

The numbers comes as a majority — 58 percent — continues to support the law. Support for the law has actually increased 4 points since last August.

Democrats and young people are the only two demographics in which majorities believe legalization has been good for the state’s image. Fifty-seven percent of Democrats — and an equal number of voters aged 18 to 29 — think it has helped Colorado’s image.
