LEMOYNE, Pa., Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Although a majority of Pennsylvanians support the legalization of marijuana, it remains a controversial issue, according to a survey released by Keystone Analytics®.

According to those surveyed, 59 percent of individuals believe that Pennsylvania is going in the wrong direction with 27 percent of voters thinking that the Commonwealth is moving in the right direction.
