(New York, NY) -- Cynthia Nixon is adding the legalization of marijuana to her campaign issues as she runs for governor of New York.
She released a video in which she claims while marijuana has been effectively legalized for white people, blacks and latinos continue to face arrest. Nixon also says legalizing weed will generate millions in tax dollars and create agricultural opportunities throughout the state.
She went on to blast the current leadership in Albany, saying with more political courage in a blue state like New York, legalization would already be a reality.
