How much disinformation was given in cannabis poll?

Volte Face and the Evening Standard claimed that most Londoners want cannabis legalisation – but their poll reveals they first told potential respondents that “it could take an estimated £2.5 billion a year out of the hands of criminals and the black market and bring this money into the regular economy”, ignoring legalised states’ expanding black markets and puny pot tax revenue. They said legalising cannabis would create thousands of new full-time jobs, “could allow authorities to strictly regulate and label the strength of cannabis sold and limit the potency” despite cannabis potency rising in legalised states – and even that the psychoactive drug “could improve the mental and physical well being of people who use cannabis” despite its proven harms.
