Drug war’s racial disparity moves NAACP to embrace marijuana legalization

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), one of the nation’s oldest civil rights groups, said at its Colorado-Montana-Wyoming state conference on Thursday that its members support Colorado’s marijuana legalization ballot initiative.

I am sure that will be good for the dozen or so Afro-Americans in Colorado, Montana, and Wyoming, but this needs to go on the road, like, say, to the South Bronx, Detroit, South Central L.A., etc.

But seriously folks, good on ya NAACP. Best o' luck with this.

Colorado is 4% African-American. That's not a lot, but enough to swing a close election.
