Poll: Voters back medical pot, split on stem cells

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A new poll shows Michigan voters supporting a ballot proposal to allow medical use of marijuana.

But there is a tighter race over a measure to loosen the state's restrictions on embryonic stem cell research.

Results released Thursday of an EPIC-MRA poll conducted for The Detroit News and TV stations WXYZ, WILX, WOOD and WJRT found 46% support the stem cell proposal, 44 are against it and 10% are undecided.

The poll found 57% support the marijuana proposal, 36% oppose it and 7% are undecided.

The telephone poll of 600 likely Michigan voters was conducted Sunday through Tuesday. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4%age points. Both proposals are on the next week's statewide ballot.
