- Garden State Dispensary, New Jersey, Polls
Despite Governor Chris Christie’s best efforts to put up a continual blockade on New Jersey’s medical marijuana program, our sister branch, Garden State Dispensary, continues to flourish on the East Coast.
Serving thousands of the state’s patients, our East Coast location prides itself on providing premier medicine, vital cannabis knowledge, and a safe haven for the state’s patients. While the state’s program is still in its beginning stages, a recent poll courtesy of Fairleigh Dickinson University indicates more change is on the way.
According to the poll’s results, which questioned 792 New Jersey-ites on legalization, the state has reached its tipping point. 49% of the poll’s respondents stated that they favor “legalization for personal use” while 46% oppose that legalization.
In other words, more people in New Jersey (or at least this sample size) favor legalizing weed over blocking the plant. Last year, the same poll showed that 52% of respondents opposed legalization while only 41% favored liberation for marijuana.
Clearly, the national turning of the tide has had an impact on New Jersey thought.
Governor Chris Christie has vowed to undo all marijuana legalization if he wins the 2016 presidential election, but given both his 30% in-state approval rate and New Jersey (along with the nation’s) clear migration towards pro-legalization thought, that seems highly unlikely.
