The USCC poll showed that there is an overwhelming amount of support for ending federal marijuana prohibition. Around 70% of the West Virginians that were polled shared that they favor Senators that vote to legalize marijuana commerce.
This poll surveyed 1,000 registered voters in the state. Even though there is a wide variety of Republicans, Democrats and Independents in West Virginia, they all agreed on one thing. Legalizing marijuana federally was important to them and they looked to support those in government that are on the same page as them.
This poll also displays that West Virginians support marijuana reform on the criminal justice level. They believe that non-violent criminal records should be expunged. They also believe that veterans should have access to medical marijuana as well.
Here are a few of the stats that came from the poll which will give you an idea of what West Virginians think about marijuana:
70% of registered voters in West Virginia support the legalization of marijuana on the federal level.

44% support the expungement of non-violent crimes.
77% support the US Congress legalizing marijuana this year.
