After Pusha T visited The Late Show with Stephen Colbert as a guest to discuss politics, the rapper caused a hype yet again. A new video released today shows Pusha T and G.O.O.D. Music president spoke in favor of Proposition 64 in California that is going to be considered on Nov. 8, 2016. The main idea of this voter initiative is to legalize marijuana in California and create an effective system for controlling it.
According to Pusha T, if Proposition 64 passes in California, no one will be arrested and placed in jail for possessing or smoking marijuana. Marijuana arrests are the engine driving the war on drugs, and that is the first thing that should be reduced. Despite the fact that the rapper is not a resident of California, he states that when good legislation passes and people accept it in a big state, others follow. If canceling marijuana prohibition reduces recidivism, then why not to vote for that?
For Pusha T, passing California's Proposition 64 would be a step forward in reducing the exhausting and absolutely unnecessary war on drugs that takes place in America nowadays. Saying yes to the legalization will be extremely beneficial for the country as hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars will no longer be wastefully spent on the silly struggle.
