A strong majority of likely Arizona voters support the legalization of recreational marijuana in the state. A poll from OH Predictive insights shows 62% of those surveyed support the legalization.

The support is a 9% increase from the same poll in December. The support is in all areas of the state according to the poll.

Sixty-two percent of urban and suburban voters support the legalization of recreational marijuana. According to the poll, 61% of rural voters support the idea.

Republican voters still oppose the idea, with only 44% supporting and 4% unsure.

A citizen initiative calling for the legalization of marijuana appears to have collected enough signatures on the November ballot, but the signatures are still going through the verification process.
