Poll: Two-thirds of Floridians favor pot amendment

- Two-thirds of Florida voters support a proposed constitutional amendment that would broadly legalize medical marijuana, according to a Florida Atlantic University poll released Wednesday.

The poll said 67 percent of voters support Amendment 2 on the Nov. 8 ballot, while about 30 percent oppose it. That would be enough support to top a 60 percent threshold for approving constitutional amendments.

A similar ballot proposal failed in 2014, when it received about 58 percent of the vote. The poll of 500 likely voters was conducted from Friday to Sunday and has a margin of error of 4.3 percentage points.
