Q-Poll: Floridians high on getting high

pot exclamation pointFlorida voters are at an all-time high for allowing grown-ups to have small amounts of weed for personal use, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released today.

The poll found 65 percent of voters statewide support legalizing small quantities for adult use, while 30 percent disapprove.

Republicans, however, aren’t as keen on green: They’re split 48-48 percent, according to the poll results.

Meanwhile, more than three-quarters of Dems — 78 percent — back the bud, showing that the partisan divide isn’t limited to guns.

The survey also found voters support the sale of legal marijuana in their community by a 61-34 percent margin.

Here’s the crosstabs:
