Christopher Ingram, the Washington Post’s marijuana policy reporter, tweeted the latest polling results for marijuana legalization on Monday. Every state preparing to vote on recreational cannabis legalization was found to be in favor of the progressive changes.
Marijuana legalization is leading in every state it’s on the ballot this November. Latest polls:

Arizona, which is generally considered an incredibly conservative state, was polled at 50 percent in favor of legalization, with 40 percent opposed and 10 percent undecided. Proposition 205 would institute a traceability program and licensing guidelines in a state with many registered voters over 55 years of age.
A survey last month showed California to be the most likely to legalize cannabis this November. Of over 1700 people questioned, 60 percent said they would vote in favor of Prop 64, with only 36 percent opposed and 4 percent undecided. California stands to be the world’s largest cannabis economy if legalization passes.
Voters in Nevada have the chance this November to legalize under Question 2, which is currently supported by 57 percent of polled voters. 33 percent of respondents oppose Question 2, and 10 percent are unsure of their position.
53 percent of voters in Massachusetts say they would vote in favor of Question 4. Out of the 700 individuals polled, 40 percent were against the measure and 7 percent were undecided. In late September, Massachusetts witnessed several raids on personal gardens, including that of an 81 year old grandmother growing a single plant for her glaucoma and insomnia.
Maine voters also seem to lean toward legalization after a recent poll. Just over 500 likely voters were questioned, and 53 percent said they would vote for recreational marijuana under Question 1. Only 38 percent of Main voters oppose legalization and the remaining 10 percent are still unsure of how they will cast their vote in November.
