Something we’ve been saying for a long time…
Via the Marijuana Majority twitter account:
“Creating a legal, responsible and regulated framework for marijuana is a predominant civil right issue and it’s long overdue,” said Alice Huffman, longtime President of California State NAACP.
The California State NAACP has formally endorsed the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA).
Of course, it’s not just legalization of marijuana. It’s the entire drug war that’s a civil rights issue (and a host of other issues as well). But again, since marijuana enforcement is the biggest piece of the drug war, it’s a great place to start.
