Support for legalizing marijuana continues to grow in New Hampshire.
A new WMUR Granite State Poll shows that 59 percent of New Hampshire adults support legalization of marijuana for recreational use, with 35 percent opposed.
Support has increased by 8 percentage points over the past year, while opposition has dropped 6 points.
The polls shows that 27 percent of Granite Staters would like to keep marijuana laws as they are, with most of the rest favoring legalizing the drug or at least decriminalizing it.
The poll of 543 randomly selected New Hampshire adults was conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center by landline and cellphone from Oct. 6-13 and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.
