Half of Mass. voters OK with legalized marijuana

Nearly half of Massachusetts voters would support the legalization of marijuana, according to a new Boston Globe poll that suggests the state could be fertile ground for a ballot campaign to legalize the drug here in 2016.

Forty-eight percent of likely voters said they would support a ballot question making it legal for adults over 21 to consume or possess limited amounts of marijuana, while 47 percent said they would oppose such a measure. Five percent said they do not know how they would vote.
