ATLANTA — A majority of Georgians favor legalizing access of medical marijuana while a larger majority opposes allowing guns on college campuses, according to a survey released Thursday.

In a poll conducted Tuesday by automated calling, 51 percent of registered voters said they favor doctor-prescribed medical marijuana “in very specific instances, such as in a liquid form to reduce seizures from young children.” The numbers were roughly the same for Republicans and Democrats but just shy of a majority for people who describe themselves as independents.

This comes after both Gov. Nathan Deal and House Speaker David Ralston have been quoted in the media saying they are open to consider legalizing medical uses of marijuana.
