The city-initiated survey of 300 likely voters this past spring found that 40.3% of those polled opposed the city allowing relaxing restrictions, and 37.7% of the voters said they would support relaxing restrictions, while 13.3% said it makes no difference to them.

Within the +/- of 3%, I can’t see where “Voters” are opposed to relaxing restrictions is accurate. 

Also, with the 37.7% and the 13.3% combination, it doesn’t add up. This is not conclusive at all.

And only 300 voters. Really!

Editor’s Note: The city’s survey of 300 likely voters found that 40.3% of them said they were opposed to the city allowing cultivation, manufacturing and testing of cannabis in the city’s industrial zones. It also found that 37.7% said they would support such a thing, while 13.3% said it makes no difference to them, and 8.7% said they were unsure or didn’t want to answer.
