NAACP Backs Marijuana Legalization in California

The California Branch of the NAACP, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, led by President Alice Huffman, recently announced its endorsement for Proposition 19, an initiative the ballot for November that would legalize the recreational use of marijuana in California.

"We have empirical proof that the application of the marijuana laws has been unfairly applied to our young people of color," Huffman said in an official statement.

Some church groups are angry. They want Huffman fired and marijuana to stay illegal. They don't seem to understand that the legalization of marijuana will lower crime rates, lower incarceration of non-violent criminals, and open up a new industry.
