Isn’t it kind of ironic that Ron Paul and NAACP both see U.S. drug laws as a civil rights issue?

Isn’t it kind of ironic that Ron Paul and NAACP both see U.S. drug laws as a civil rights issue?

The NAACP has come out in support of Proposition 19 (on California ballot in November) which would legalize recreational use of marijuana.

Their argument is almost identical to the one Ron Paul made at the Tavis Smiley Republican debates in 2008. (It’s a legit argument.)

What do you think?? If these two can agree, shouldn’t the drug laws be changed ASAP??

“I would like to believe if we have a freer society, it will take care of blacks and whites and everybody equally because we’re all individuals. To me that is so important. But if we had equal justice under the law, it would be a big improvement. If we had a repeal of most of the federal laws on drugs and the unfairness on how blacks are treated with these drug laws it would be a tremendous improvement……..a system designed to protect individual liberty will have no punishments for any group and no privileges. Today, inner city folks, minorities, are punished unfairly in the War on Drugs. For instance: blacks make up 14% of those who use drugs, yet 36% of those arrested are blacks and it ends up that 63% of those who finally end up in prison are blacks. THIS HAS TO CHANGE. We don’t have to have more courts and more prisons. We need to repeal to the whole war on drugs. IT ISN’T WORKING. (APPLAUSE AND CHEERS)…..”


(CNN) — Legalizing marijuana is a civil rights issue, according to one of California’s most prominent African-American advocacy groups.

The California State Conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, led by President Alice Huffman, recently announced its “unconditional endorsement” for Proposition 19, a legislative initiative on the November ballot that would legalize the recreational use of marijuana in California.

Huffman said African-Americans are disproportionately affected by the criminalization of marijuana which makes passing the law a civil rights issue.

“We have empirical proof that the application of the marijuana laws has been unfairly applied to our young people of color,” Huffman said in an official statement.
scott b………….”Why is it ironic? Both of them are on the radical fringe.”

So I guess dumb@ass policy (ie Obama) is “mainstream”. Good to know.
