(KUTV) - Utahns support legalizing medical marijuana, a new UtahPolicy.com poll reports - including members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The survey found three-out-of-four Utahns are in favor of the citizen initiative that would allow for limited and controlled medical marijuana use to control pain and treat specific diseases.

The poll's results were similar to a Dan Jones & Associates survey conducted last summer, which found 61 percent of "very active" Mormons in the Beehive State support the ballot initiative.

Voters can expect to see the initiative on the November 2018 ballot if 113,000 registered voter signatures are collected on a petition. The petition is being circulated now and must be complete by this spring.
