Gibraltar is not sure whether or not it favours decriminalising cannabis for personal use, but there is very strong support for using the drug medicinally.
This according to a GBC survey which saw over 800 face to face interviews, conducted by Colorworks. By far the clearest result was in respect of the GHA introducing cannabis for medicinal purposes - a full 85% of those surveyed supported this.
44% of those asked said they were in favour of decriminalisation, 43% against and 13% didn't know. The results for legalisation were marginally different, with a majority of 46% opposing it.
The opinion poll was conducted ahead of tonight's Viewpoint, which will feature a panel discussion on cannabis in front of a live audience at the Leisure Cinemas. Catch it on GBC TV tonight at 9:30pm & email Viewpoint@gbc.gi for more information on tickets.
