A new survey of state residents likely to vote this fall found that a clear 53% majority of Michiganders would just say yes to legalizing and taxing marijuana.

The survey’s result was no surprise to groups hoping to gather 253,000 signatures in Michigan to get a marijuana measure on November ballots.

“Support for legalizing marijuana continues to increase here at a rate of at least 2% per year — that’s what we’ve been tracking in Michigan, and it seems to be roughly the same across the country,” said Detroit lawyer Matt Abel, a long-time supporter of legal pot.

“To me, this poll actually under-represents the real number of people who truly would vote for legalization because some people just don’t want to admit how they feel to a pollster,” said Abel, the executive director of Michigan NORML — the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
