NAACP Conference Endorses Colorado Amendment To Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol
By Brian Vicente, Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol
We have some big news, and I wanted you to be among the first to know:
Today, the Yes on Amendment 64 campaign is proud to announce the endorsement of the Colorado/Wyoming/Montana conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
The endorsement of the NAACP, a group with such a long history of advancing equality and civil rights, highlights that the enforcement of Colorado's marijuana laws disproportionately impacts communities of color and low-income individuals. And it affirms that taking marijuana off the streets and instead regulating it like alcohol would go a long way toward fixing this problem.
With 75 days until Election Day, it's so important that we continue to build our coalition of support for Amendment 64 -- not only from established organizations like the NAACP, but from folks like you and me. So once you've finished reading the article, be sure to share it on Facebook and Twitter.
And please take a moment today to reach out to any Coloradan you know who may be on the fence about Amendment 64. That conversation today might make all the difference on Election Day.
Thanks for all that you do.
