Nearly half of the Scottish population supports the legalisation of cannabis use, according to The Times.
About 47% favoured ending prohibition, a figure broadly similar as in the UK as a whole. That’s higher than the 37% opposed, whiel 17% were unsure.
Scottish Nationalist Party voters were the most likely to back legalisation, at 59%.
By figure with Conservative voters was 34%. Labour and Liberal Democrat voters split almost evenly, with 45 and 44% in favour respectively.
In 2016 Nicola Sturgeon told SNP activists that she was in favour of cannabis being legalised for medical use but not general decriminalisation.
