The majority of registered voters in New York support the legalization of marijuana, according to a new poll released on Monday.

The poll, which was commissioned by the Marijuana Policy Project and the Drug Policy Alliance and conducted by Emerson College, found that 62 percent of registered voters support the legalization of marijuana in New York and only 28 percent oppose it.

“It’s time New York stop wasting resources punishing otherwise law-abiding residents for using a substance that is safer than alcohol. Let your lawmakers know voters want them to take marijuana off of the criminal market, so we can create good jobs, build the economy, and fund essential services,” MPP said in a statement on their website.
