A WBUR poll out today shows that 55 percent of likely voters say they favor legalizing recreation marijuana in the state, up from 50 percent last month. The margin of error for the poll is 4 percent.

We held our ballot question debate on legalizing marijuana last month, but we want to revisit the issue to fact check some of the claims, including new ads from either side.
