As we reported yesterday, 88 percent of Florida voters polled say they support medical marijuana. That number is among the highest medical pot has ever polled in any state, and our friends at the Broward-Palm Beach New Times point out that it’s freakishly high for a poll in the Sunshine state:

With each successive poll, Florida has shown a growing support for medical weed. Now the latest Quinnipiac poll released Monday gives us the clearest picture to changing attitudes. According to the survey, nearly 90 percent of Floridians polled say they back the legalization of medical marijuana.”
