Idahoans, it seems, have a strong aversion to pot.

According to a poll of 605 residents conducted by Idaho Politics Weekly, 64 percent said they oppose legalizing marijuana in the Gem State, with 53 percent of respondents saying that they "strongly oppose" legalization and another 11 percent saying they "somewhat oppose" legalization.

Seventeen percent of respondents said they "strongly support" legalization and 16 percent "somewhat support" legalization. The remaining 3 percent said they didn't know if they supported cannabis legalization.

The same survey group was also asked about racial bias in Idaho, with 32 percent of respondents saying that racial bias in the state has increased during the past 20 years, and another 43 percent saying that racial bias has remained "about the same."

Conducted between Jan. 21-Jan. 29, the Idaho Politics Weekly poll has a margin for error of +/- 3.98 percent.
