Puff, puff … nah, I’ll pass: That’s apparently the sentiment of half of likely voters in the country as Colorado begins the public sale of marijuana for recreational use this week.

Forty-one percent of likely U.S. voters favor the legalization of recreational marijuana use in their states,according to a new poll from Rasmussen Reports. Fifty percent are opposed.


Most, however, do approve of the use of the drug for medicinal purposes.

The survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted on Jan. 2 and has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
