Pot-use poll: Majority of Coloradans say at home OK, not concerts

A majority of Colorado voters polled by Quinnipiac University said marijuana use should be confined to homes and members-only clubs.

Respondents in the poll, released Monday, said weed should be legal in members-only clubs, but not in bars, or clubs where alcohol is served, or entertainment venues where admission is charged.

After six months of legal marijuana use, Colorado voters still support legal use 54 – 43 percent, identical to the findings of an April Quinnipiac survey and down slightly from the 58 – 39 percent support February 10.

“Coloradans are still good to go on marijuana for recreational use in private settings, but as far as letting the good times roll in bars and clubs where alcohol is served, voters say don’t smoke ’em if you’ve got ’em,” Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll, said in a release.

Fifty-one percent of those polled said they have tried marijuana, but only 16 percent said they’ve tried it since it became legal January 1.

Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,147 registered voters with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
