Cynthia Nixon Puts Legalizing Marijuana Front and Center of Campaign

NY has legalized marijuana for medical use.

Eric B. and Rakim are now on their much-hyped 2018 tour, which began on April 8 in Boston.

The former Sex and the City star says she favours legalisation as a means of "ending the racist war on drugs".

"Affordable housing affects everyone not just here in New York City but all across the state", Nixon said. The duo came on about an hour after their advertised set time and apparently played a shorter set for that reason, including such classics as "I Ain't No Joke", "Microphone Fiend", and "Don't Sweat the Technique".

"The simple truth is for white people, the use of marijuana has effectively been legal for a long time", Nixon added.

Actress and candidate for governor Cynthia Nixon said on Wednesday she supports legalizing recreational use of marijuana.

She also says legalizing marijuana can also generate much-needed tax revenue and create new agricultural opportunities for the state.

"White people do get arrested for marijuana, but what we're saying is you're more likely to get arrested for marijuana if you're black or Latino", noted Kassandra Frederique, New York state director for the Drug Policy Alliance. Colorado, Oregon, California, Washington, Alaska, Nevada, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont and Washington, D.C. have all legalized recreational marijuana. NY permits medical marijuana for certain conditions through a program regulated by the state Department of Health.

She also criticized the lack of "political courage coming out of Albany" for not having already legalizing marijuana in NY. Federal legalization could also inject up to $130 billion into United States tax coffers by 2025. While that store is specifically for medical marijuana - which is allowed in a restricted fashion under New York's law - the company hopes to pivot to a retail business if New York's legislature legalizes the plant.
