A February 2013 survey conducted by the Elon University Poll found strong support in North Carolina for medical marijuana in certain cases. Seventy-six percent of those surveyed said doctors should be allowed to prescribe medical marijuana for reasons such as cancer.

Support was widespread across age, race, gender, income, and partisanship, but support was greatest among non-religious individuals, Democrats and younger respondents (under the age of 40). Eighty-seven percent of Democrats said they supported medical marijuana compared to 82 percent of Independents and 66 percent of Republicans. These results match national numbers and trends, but the use of the word “cancer” in the survey question is likely to evoke sympathy from many respondents and thus the results here are not comparable to those surveys that do not use cancer as an example.
