TALLAHASSEE - Florida voters overwhelmingly support the idea of legalized medical marijuana according to a Quinnipiac University poll.
The poll also found that 55 percent of voters approved of recreational use of marijuana, compared to 44 percent who opposed.
The poll didn't specifically ask about the constitutional amendment on the November ballot that would legalize medical marijuana. Instead, it asked about the idea in general.

Pollsters found that support for medical marijuana was strong regardless of party affiliation, age or gender.
