In late January, Public Policy Polling released a poll of North Carolina voters saying 63 percent believed doctors should be allowed to prescribe marijuana to patients to alleviate pain or other conditions.
Nationally, an increasing number of white and black evangelicals approve of medical marijuana legalization.
Now, 20 states have legalized marijuana either for medical, recreational or both uses. North Carolina now has groups such as the North Carolina Cannabis Patients Network and NC NORMLworking toward changing the law. And a year ago, N.C. Rep. Kelly Alexander, D-Mecklenburg, filed a bill to legalize medical marijuana in the state but the bill stalled in committee.
