A new poll reveals that Michiganders have a great deal of common sense, supporting issues from gay rights to the legalization of marijuana.

The latest public opinion survey, which was conducted by the Glengariff Group, indicates the majority of the state (55.5 percent) supports the concept of allowing people to marry a person of the same sex.

Not surprisingly, the poll also found that 77 percent of the population opposes “Religious Freedom” legislation that would allow businesses to discriminate against citizens. Only 19 percent of the state said they would support this concept.

Michigan also understands that prohibition is a dying animal. The poll found that 56 percent of the people support the legalization of marijuana, while only 36 percent said they did not.

Overall, the people of Michigan seem to subscribe to to credo: Live and let live.
