A recent poll among Utah residents showed increased support for medical cannabis among active Mormons.

The UtahPolicy.com commissioned poll surveyed 608 adults between August 30 and September 5 showed 74 percent of Utah residents favor medical cannabis legalization. Sixty-three percent of active members in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints supported medical cannabis legalization while somewhat active church members’ support was higher at 80.15 percent. Another survey in June found 63 percent of active Church of Latter-day Saints members and 87 percent of inactive members supported a medical cannabis ballot measure.

The Church released a statement on the issue which said it would like to see more research conducted on medical cannabis and did not object to cannabidiol legislation last year. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabis compound which contains medical properties and does not give the user a high.

In order to get medical cannabis on the state’s November 2018 ballot, 113,000 voter signatures need to be gathered with at least 10 percent of voters in 26 of 29 in the state Senate districts.
