A new poll finds four in five Pennsylvanians favor legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes. The Franklin and Marshall College poll shows 59 percent of registered voters strongly support medical marijuana in Pennsylvania, up three points from an F&M poll in January. Most Pennsylvanians, however, are against legalizing marijuana for recreational purposes. According to the poll, 57 percent oppose legalized pot, while 35 percent favor it. The survey of 502 registered voters was conducted June 23-29 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.
