CA NAACP Supports Legalizing Marijuana - Calls it Civil Right Issue
Posted on Jul 08, 2010
The California NAACP supports Proposition 19, which will be on the ballot in November. If it passes, recreational use of marijuana will be legal in California. This CNN article reports that Alice Huffman, President of the organization, claims that this is a civil rights issue, disproportionately affecting African Americans. Others are strongly opposed to this initiative, saying that legalizing marijuana would only open the door to more problems.
