NAACP is offering their support to legalizing marijuana. Hmm…??? Why??? They see it as a way to keep minorities from being arrested so often. Check out the story…

As reported by HipHopWired.Com:

With the possibility of recreational marijuana becoming legal in California due to Prop 19, more endorsements have come out in support of its legalization.

The NAACP is the latest organization to offer support for the initiative.

The NAACP expressed support and “unconditional endorsement” for the initiative after considering recent study released by the Drug Policy Alliance, which found that Blacks are more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than whites.

The study also found that in 2008 African Americans and Latinos combined comprised less than 44% of the state’s population, but together constituted 56% of the people arrested in California for possessing marijuana.

Interesting… DMV, do you agree or disagree with the NAACP???
