Poll: Jersey Residents Prefer Legalized Pot to Online Gaming

Soon, the state’s vice squads will have nothing left to do.

AP reports on New Jersey’s vice preferences: “A Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind poll finds 41 percent of respondents would support smoking marijuana recreationally if it became legal. That compares to only 32 percent who support gambling over the Internet, which is legal in New Jersey now. The poll finds support for online gambling has fallen, even as it enters its third full month and more than 150,000 online gambling accounts have been set up in the state.”

Well you know what they say. The grass (heh, heh-heh, get it?) is always greener on the other side.
