Marijuana news from contributing authors and staff writers on the latest in marijuana and medical marijuana
The California State NAACP has formally endorsed an initiative to regulate marijuana similarly to alcohol in the state in 2016, joining a growing coalition of supporters for the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA).
From the press release:
“Creating a legal, responsible and regulated framework for marijuana is a predominant civil rights issue and it’s long overdue,” said Alice Huffman, longtime President of California State NAACP. “The current system is counterproductive, financially wasteful and racially biased, and the people of California have repeatedly called for it to be fixed. This measure will ensure that California is not unjustly criminalizing responsible adults while also ensuring that our children are protected while the State receives hundreds of millions of new dollars for vital government and community-based programs.”
MPP announced our support for AUMA late last year.
