Three years ago, a Ball State poll showed Hoosiers wanted medical Cannabis by 55%. On October 7, 2016, a Howey Politics Indiana poll, in conjunction with Indianapolis TV station WTHR, released a poll showing that 73% of Hoosiers want medical Cannabis.

A breakdown of the demographics show that even among those 65 years of age and older favor relegalization for medical use at 57%, the lowest score of the poll. That’s 2% over the 2013 poll. Even among Republicans, 59% favor. Among Democrats the data soars to 82%.

With almost a super majority of our citizens wanting reform, it is time for Indiana to catch up with the rest of the nation. We are now, at the time of this writing, one month away from the general election. We need to put people in the Indiana Statehouse who follow the will of the people.

And let’s make sure we stay on those in the Statehouse to get reform right…the first time.
