Iowa Survey Results

Q1

Marijuana is now legal for adults in four states,
and 39 states -- including Iowa -- have laws
that allow patients to access some form of
medical marijuana. Yet all state-approved
marijuana activities remain illegal under federal
law. Regardless of your own opinion on
legalization, do you think states should be able
to carry out their own marijuana laws without
federal interference, or should the federal
government arrest and prosecute people who
are following state marijuana laws? *
