While DeSantis may be behind the proposal, smoking medical marijuana is not as popular with his fellow Republicans as it as with Democrats and independents. While 70 percent of Democrats and 67 percent of independents think smoking medical marijuana well benefit patients, 57 percent of Republicans in the Sunshine State think it will help.

The poll of 625 registered voters in Florida was taken from March 18 through March 20 and had a margin of error of +/- 4 percent.
