Coloradans Think Marijuana Legalization Hurts State Image

Nevertheless, voters support the law


While most Colorado voters still support the legalization of recreational marijuana, a majority says the law harms the state's national image in a new poll on Monday.

Colorado voters say 51 percent to 38 percent that the law is bad for Colorado's image, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Monday.

Still, 58 percent of voters support the law compared with 39 percent who oppose it, more than Quinnipiac's last poll in August that found 54 percent to 41 percent support.
