A recent poll has found strong support for medical marijuana legislation in South Carolina.

Sixty-one percent of the people surveyed last month by Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy expressed support for a bill that would allow South Carolina doctors to prescribe medical marijuana for specific conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorders.

A total of 31 percent were opposed and 8 percent had no opinion. The poll showed the lowest support for medical marijuana is in the Upstate, where 53 percent of respondents expressed support and 35 percent were opposed.

Support for medical marijuana topped the 60-percent threshold in every other part of South Carolina, according to the poll.
