Denver • Colorado voters still support the state law that legalized recreational marijuana, but most believe it is hurting the image of the state, according to a new poll released Monday. The Quinnipiac University Poll found that 51 percent of voters overall believe the measure is bad for the state's reputation, while 38 percent see it as a net positive. Among voters 18 to 29, 57 percent say legal marijuana is good for the state's image. Among voters older than 65, 67 percent say it's bad. Overall 58 percent of people surveyed still strongly support the law passed in 2012. On Jan. 1, Colorado became the first state in the nation to allow legal retail sales of recreational marijuana.
