Chick needs to go back to "acting" in lame tv shows.

Seriously, I've come up with better ideas after tokin' half an ounce in one day.

Basically what Cindy is doin' is race-baiting and tryin' to cater to blacks by playin' the victim-hood card. Sad part is it'll prolly work.

NY gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon says legalizing pot could be ‘reparations’ for blacks

Quote:
New York gubernatorial candidate and actress Cynthia Nixon suggested that legalizing marijuana on a statewide basis could, in effect, serve as “reparations” for African-Americans.

So … how does she figure?

On Saturday, Nixon spoke at the Cannabis Parade in Union Square, and, according to Forbes, said that the state could, perhaps, give back to the black community by legalizing pot and ensuring that the black community received the first crack at obtaining marijuana licenses after legalization.

“Now that cannabis is exploding as an industry, we have to make sure that those communities that have been harmed and devastated by marijuana arrests get the first shot at this industry,” Nixon explained. “We [must] prioritize [the black community] in terms of licenses. It’s a form of reparations.”

“Arresting people – particularly people of color — for cannabis is the crown jewel in the racist war on drugs and we must pluck it down,” Nixon told the crowd. “We must expunge people’s records; we must get people out of prison.”

Nixon added that pot was a “racial justice issue” because of the amount of African-Americans are jailed on marijuana possession charges.
