Poll: Minnesotans high on legal marijuana
FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. - In their state fair polls, the Minnesota House and Senate both asked whether recreational marijuana should be legalized at age 21. The results were almost identical:

The House and Senate asked separate questions about gun control, too.
89% said background checks should be required on all gun sales, in response to the House's poll. 85% favor the concepts in so-called "red flag laws," in response to the Senate's poll.
More than 11,100 people took the House poll.
More than 6,900 people took the Senate poll.
