Cynthia Nixon Made A Special Appearance At Eric B

Cynthia Nixon, the former Sex and the City actress and current candidate in the running to become the new Governor of NY state, was introduced during the set.

"Affordable housing affects everyone not just here in New York City but all across the state", Nixon said.

Cynthia Nixon announces her run for New York State governor in Brooklyn, New York. "We have people, particularly African-American men, sitting in jail for something that white people do with impunity".

Cuomo, who had previously voiced opposition to the legalization of recreational marijuana use, argued there is still "widespread division" on the issue among legislators but with other states, including MA, taking action to legalize weed, it was time for NY to look at it.

"In 2018, in a blue state in NY, marijuana shouldn't even be an issue, if there was more political courage coming out of Albany we would have done this already". Based on the statistics Nixon cited, legalizing marijuana and keeping that many more people of color out of NY prisons for these drug charges would be a step in that direction. Now, however, she says there is a deeper, sinister link to racism behind officials' refusal to legalize weed.




Analysis suggests marijuana could be a boon to New York's tax revenues and could create jobs in the state. "Isn't it time we legalize it for everybody else?" But he has directed the state Department of Health to conduct a study on the health, economic and criminal justice impacts legalized marijuana could have across NY, especially now that neighboring Vermont and MA have legalized it. Federal legalization could also inject up to $130 billion into USA tax coffers by 2025.

There are legislative proposals to legalize and regulate marijuana in NY.

She added that marijuana has been essentially legal for white people and should therefore be legalized for all other individuals. He has long-opposed recreational legalization, and as recently as February 2017 referred to it as a "gateway drug", according to Politco.com.

And police reform advocates have assailed de Blasio for continuing to embrace "broken windows" policing, a policing method that targets smaller crimes to stave off larger ones.
