Most Mormons Support Medical Marijuana
]The following might throw a wrench in your preconceived notions, but we can assure you it’s legit. According to the most recent surveys, the majority of “active” Mormons in Utah are in favor of medical marijuana.
CANNABIS AND UTAH
It might be common knowledge, but the vast majority of Mormon people abstain from drinking, drugs and other acts of hedonism like premarital sex. The state of Utah is predominantly Mormon, and their policies and political leanings often reflect that.
In accordance with these views, Mormon leaders in the state have historically been opposed to medical marijuana. They have even battled state lawmakers and politicians about the matter. Although, CBD oil is permitted–but only for the treatment of epilepsy and only if the patient purchases it in another state.
In 2015, Republican Senator Mark B. Madsen proposed a bill that would lift the 100-year prohibition of cannabis in Utah. Seriously, Utah banned cannabis back in 1915–they were one of the first states to do so. The measure, called Senate Bill 259, would have allowed Utah to have a medical marijuana program. The bill failed.

With public weed-smoking officially banned almost everywhere, several major cities that are now enjoying huge economic benefits from legal pot—like Denver, Seattle, Portland, and Las Vegas—are struggling with the issue of toking in public places.
NO SMOKING IN PUBLIC
Let’s take Washington state as an example. There, the law protects cannabis consumption in private residences but nixes all public toking. Seattle’s city webpage states: “Marijuana cannot be consumed in public view, such as on streets or sidewalks or in public parks.”
