(CBS Connecticut) — A new Quinnipiac University Poll released this morning finds a slight majority of Connecticut voters support “allowing adults to legally possess small amounts of marijuana for personal use.”  Fifty-two percent endorse the idea, while 45 percent  oppose it.

That support breaks down along age lines — younger people are more likely to favor legalizing pot, older voters are more likely to want it to remain banned.

Meanwhile, a whopping 90 percent of voters support medical use of marijuana.

A majority of Connecticut voters consider alcohol more harmful to a person’s health than pot.  But more than half of voters also believe that legalizing marijuana would lead to more underage use.

Forty-seven percent of Connecticut voters admit to trying pot.
