DC Overwhelmingly in favor of Drug Decriminalization policy

In news that doesn’t surprise anyone, Washington D.C. voters are hugely in favor of Decriminalizing drugs (not just marijuana) and creating Safe Injection Sites in the city.

According to a new poll conducted by FM3 Research, 83% of citizens strongly or somewhat support decriminalizing drug possession.

Interestingly, when various pros and cons of full decriminalization was explained to those contributing to the poll, support dipped down to 77%. Not a huge dip, but telling in the sense that some may not be as progressive in their thinking towards drugs as they think.

The poll has a margin of error of +/-4.9%, and were done over the telephone or online with 402 likely voters this November, conducted between June 30 and July 8 of this year.

Here’s a link to the full poll memo.
