Pusha T is the latest in a collective of artists to voice public support for Proposition 64, a law that will legalize and regulate adult recreational use (21 and up) of marijuana in California. Medicinal marijuana is already legal in California, and has been since 1996.
Artists for 64 is a coalition that includes Jay Z, Shailene Woodley, Olivia Wilde, Harry Belafonte, Al Harrington, and more. Not only is this collective supporting the law for medicinal purposes, but there’s also a large social justice component to it as well.
“I’m not a California voter, but I know when good legislation passes in the biggest state, other states follow,” Pusha T says in the video. “And that’s an important step in ending mass incarceration across the country. If ending prohibition on marijuana reduces recidivism, then let’s do it.”
Watch the G.O.O.D. Music President speak on the issue below. Pusha T is currently working on his third album, King Push.
