Prop 19 Debate – Is Smoking Marijuana a Civil Right or Will It Poison Our Community?
The issue before the African American community is whether decriminalizing, regulating and then taxing marijuana in the name of protecting our civil rights is a reasonable and justified solution to reducing the numbers of African Americans in the criminal justice system? Would legalizing marijuana address the disparities or create a bigger problems? We hope you will spend the 10 minutes to watch our video and then share it with your network.

lol he said colored people…that says it all!
Ron Allen’s words prove just how ignorant he really is.
Listening to that crackhead ron allen when high is hilarious
once you realize that this is not a race thing or an African-American thing or a White thing you see how it is an ignorance thing. A lot of people are ignorant. Education is not a word to throw around, learning ABOUT marijuana is part of your education, too.
@diablito118 I’m a fan of 19 or 20 (now that may be because I’m tired of waiting as a 19 year old) but at least that way you keep it out of high schools, because college is just a clusterfuck and there is no hope for de-alcoholizing there haha
THIS PLACE IS SAFE
we spend hundreds of thousands of tax dollars fighting cannabis. then we arrest minor offenders for drug abuse that they then fill the prisons of america that allows murderers and bank robbers to go free earlier because of overflow. or we can legalize it and make hundreds of thousands of dollars for taxing it and reduce the amount of youth filling our prisons. its your choice america.
That bishop is an asshat.
@diablito118 I also agree. You can be 18 to buy cigarettes and die quicker from it, also you can join the military and die for your country, but yet you can not smoke a join at 18? This country is fucked up in the head. I’m very sad Prop 19 didn’t pass. But much respects from me to those who voted yes!
i agree weed should be looked upon like liquor away from youths i actually think 18 is a good age not 21
Well your not doing a good enough job. IM HIGH RIGHT NOW FOOL!!!! HAHAHA. But in the safety of my own home, far away from the youngsters, doing no damage to no one, not even myself. And also to the preacher with false information, if it is much more dangerous than cigarettes, then why do doctors recommend weed, and not cigarettes? And why does tobacco kill nearly 400,000 a year and pot 0 if pot is so much worst… HAHA. YES ON 19!!! Let’s do it already…..
the opposition commentator at 2:45 is not listening to himself. People are getting arrested for something that you just said is not California’s main cause for concern. Stop incarcerating people for smoking a weed. It’s senseless.
come on california ,show the government what era we are living in
Quit ignoring the facts. People do not die from smoking marijuana!! A grand total of ZERO people a year die from it. Lets pass prop 19.
Is Smoking Marijuana a Civil Right or Will It Poison Our Community?
When you think about whats really poisoning are community you have to think how many people die from cannabis
400,000 people die a year from cigarettes
85,000 people die from alcohol
0 people die from marijuana
whats really poisoning are community.
Marijuana has no link to cancer, theres a new study that proves this
wow these anti marijuana idiots have no idea what there talking about
Damn! DMX got fat!
If any of what the proponents of cannabis prohibition say were true, then the illegalization of alcohol would bring 1000x more benefit to a community then the possible benefit gained from keeping cannabis illegal… Yet, despite them supposedly wanting whats best for society, they never say anything about how alcohol should be illegal, and when asked, those who answer, say they would not make it illegal again due to the same issues that are currently infesting the illegal cannabis industry.
@Spliffer45 Furthermore as the nurse was saying the cannabinoids found in cannabis have extreme anti-carcinogenic properties. So recap… Much less total chemical carcinogen POTENCY in cannabis (because thats what matters, its affinity for causing cancer, not a mole count). Zero radioactive metals (which account for 60%+ of all tobacco caused lung cancers). And the active chemical THC (found in 20%+ in todays pot) and other cannabinoids are some of the most potent ANTI-carcinogens on earth.
Cannabis has higher concentrations of some chemical carcinogens, but these carcinogens found in higher concentrations are of the least potent ones. The most potent carcinogens related to tobacco smoke are in MUCH lower concentrations in cannabis. Furthermore chemical carcinogens only account for 40% of the tobacco induced lung cancers, the vast majority are caused by radioactive metals (radio active carcinogens not chemical carcinogens) found in commercial fertilizers used on tobacco.
OH HELLL NOW U WOULDN’T WANT TO OPEN THE DOOR TO WHITES N BLACKS N GETTING THEM HIGH….. are u kidding me this is what where arguing with? carcinogenics from smoked marijuana equal to 3 cigs? even if that was true what about all the hundreds of ways of ingesting marijuana? drops, edibles, vaporizers, bongs, pipes. not just blunts and joints. it depends on the individual on how they ingest it some pple like the flavor so they smoke it some pple do it for pain or for the high n use edibles.
