The researchers noted they had some concerns of bias:
"Generally speaking, two sources of error concern researchers most. Non-response bias is created when selected participants either choose not to participate in the survey or are unavailable for interviewing. Response errors are the product of the question and answer process. Surveys that rely on self reported behaviors and attitudes are susceptible to biases related to the way respondents process and respond to survey questions."

I would like to add that this college is based in Lancaster, PA and surveys were conducted in person by interview. For one, people are less likely to admit in person support of something that many still consider taboo. Also, it does not mention where these people were from. I assume they are mostly from the local rural area which does not represent fair sample of the PA public. Conduct the same poll in Philadelphia and I bet you will find the majority support legalization.

Take a look at the marijuana legalization organizations below. Help end this unjust, unfounded, harmful prohibition by joining their mailing lists, signing their petitions and writing your legislators when they call for it.

MPP - The Marijuana Policy Project - http://www.mpp.org/
LEAP - Law Enforcement Against Prohibition - http://www.leap.cc/ - "Cops say legalize"
NORML - National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws - http://norml.org/
DPA - Drug Policy Alliance - http://www.drugpolicy.org/

The bill will keep getting reintroduced and reintroduced year after year just like the other 19 states have done till its passed.

The people and science facts cant be denied forever pal .

People like you are a dieing breed (thank goodness).

Maryland legalized medical Marijuana on Friday making it the 19 state .

Illinois will be MMJ state number 20 -- the bill has passed the Illinois house and is now in the Illinois Senate- and the senate has previously passed much more liberal MMJ bills-----we'll know by no later than May 31 ...

Stel, as someone who is from this area I can assure you this poll is not accurate. I'm not sure exactly where they were conducting the questions or who the people were but a majority are in favor of legalization, even conservatives and at least one state law maker.
