American voters overwhelmingly agree that Veterans Administration doctors should be able to prescribe marijuana in pill form for veterans who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, a new Quinnipiac University poll shows.

According to the poll conducted between May 24-30, of 1,561 registered voters nationwide:
  • 87-9 percent overall agree.
  • 82-13 percent from military households agree.
  • 79 percent or higher from all parties agreed.
Voters also agreed overwhelmingly that adults should be able to use medical marijuana if prescribed from a doctor but agreed more on the issue of legalizing marijuana altogether:
  • 89-9 percent allowing adults to legally use medical marijuana.
  • 54-41 percent, making marijuana legal.
  • Men support general legalization 60-37 percent.
  • Women support, 48-46 percent.
  • Republicans oppose, 62-36 percent.
  • Voters over 65 years old oppose 57-37 percent.
The poll carried a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.
