“If California’s Prop 64 passes, no one will ever be incarcerated for marijuana again."
Pusha T has been possibly the most active rapper this election season. He appeared on Colbert earlier this week to speak out against mass incarceration, which he called a scourage "tearing apart our community." Now, he appears in a new PSA encouraging California voters to legalize marijuana and vote yes on Prop 64.
Here's what Pusha had to say about Prop 64:
“If California’s Prop 64 passes, no one will ever be incarcerated for marijuana again. Marijuana arrests are the engine that’s driving the war on drugs. It’s one of the number one reasons people trying to reenter their communities are sent back to prison. I’m not a California voter, but I know when good legislation passes in the biggest star, other states follow. And that’s an important step in ending mass incarceration around the country. What’s most important to me is keeping people who are coming home, home. If ending prohibition on marijuana reduces recidivism, then let’s do it.”
